Exhibitions at Nature in Art

To complement our ever-changing displays of work from our own collection, we hold a diverse range of special exhibitions throughout the year.

All special exhibitions are included in our usual admission fee.

We make regular changes to the items from our collection that are on display. Our collection embraces two and three-dimensional work in all media and styles ranging from Pablo Picasso to David Shepherd. Spanning 1500 years, it includes work by 600 artists from over 50 countries. So whether you prefer exotic oriental treasures or watercolour landscapes, the Flemish masters or contemporary glass, modern abstract interpretations or bronze sculpture, textiles or ethnic art there will be something here for you and you are likely to make some new discoveries too!

As well as regularly transforming our galleries with new displays from our own collection we organise a vibrant programme of special exhibitions. The programme embraces a wide range of styles, subjects and media. Most are unique exhibitions to Nature in Art, but each year we also welcome a number of touring exhibitions from other institutions. Most years we arrange an unusually comprehensive programme of between 15 and 18 special displays, meaning regular visitors are always guaranteed to see something new.


March 26th – April 28th: Langley Mill Pottery, a unique display of art wares, mostly dating from the 1880’s to the early 1900’s from this lesser known pottery, founded in 1865.

April 9th – 22nd: Conceal and Reveal, textile art by BOLT, a group of eight textile artists, under the aegis of Jean Littlejohn, who explore the diversity of nature. Meet one of the artists each day.
