Sited in the former dining room of the house during the Georgian and Victorian eras, the Art Gallery features a regular programme of exhibitions by some of the district's most exciting artists. We aim to develop and feature exhibitions by professional artists and crafts people with strong individual styles and distinct narratives to their work.
Rebecca Taylor - Dressage: Dancing with Pencil
January kicks off with a stunning inaugural exhibition by Rebecca Taylor graphite artist of horse portraits mingled with saddlery items from the museum’s collections.
Graphite artist Rebecca Taylor is a self-taught artist specialising in graphite drawings of mostly equine subjects but also including man's best friend, dogs and their feline equivalents. This display showcases her works, where she strives to get inside the brain of her subjects and portray them sympathetically on paper. One particular feature is Valegro, the handsome Olympic champion dressage horse riden by Charlotte Dujardin. Artwork including prints and cards are available to purchase. The exhibition is open until 28 February.
Meet the artist on Saturday 17 January 11 – 1pm admission free
