We are delighted to re-open the gallery on Wednesday 2 September with our new exhibition Seedscapes: Future-Proofing Nature.  Please join us online and be amongst the first to view the exhibition, as we welcome you back live from the gallery.

Seedscapes brings together five contemporary artists exploring global efforts to safeguard vital plant species from extinction. Plant diversity is rapidly declining, and faces threats from global warming, pollution and war. Yet without seeds and their potential for food and medicine, we cannot sustain ourselves. Featuring photography, moving image and sculpture, Seedscapes reveals how international artists, biologists and ecologists are responding to these challenges. This is the premiere of the exhibition before it goes on tour to the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery in Exeter, and The Dick Institute in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire, in 2021.

Meet the artists, enjoy a virtual tour of the exhibition, and find out how we’ve made the gallery a safe place for you to visit.

Free event, all welcome.

To book a place please sign up through Eventbrite here, details of how to access the event will be sent to you by email.
