Arrangements from the garden; celebrating our bountiful gardens in painting, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery


“Come join us in the garden, the flowers are at their best,
the strawberries are blooming and the vegetables are fresh.

Look closer in the garden as the spiders weave their traps, 
the bees are keeping busy and the birds have fledged their nests.

It’s busy in the garden, with all the luscious growth,
harvest and preserving for Flower Shows and Fetes”

Surrounded here by some of the most beautiful gardens it seems only natural to rejoice in the arrival of summer with a feast of flowers. Artists keep these moments alive, capturing the essence alongside favourite bottles, plates and mugs, the objects carefully chosen, carefully placed to elicit memories long after the blooms have faded. Whether captivated by the objects, the flowers or simply the painterly process, each artist tells a story of beauty in the everyday.

Combine your visit with trip to nearby Pashley Manor GardensMerriments or King John’s Nursery and reflect on how the artists are playing with scale, form, colour and perspective, concentrating on creating an aesthetic rather than illustration: bold, blousy ceramic blooms, delicate bees, richly decorated pots and plates, exquisite earrings inspired by natural contours.

All change in the Gallery as we go bolder and brighter, celebrating nature’s rich bounties. Join us for the opening on Friday 1st July from 6-8pm.
