What to look out for at our new look Museum & Art Gallery

Edition: Winter 2022

Across the country, forced lockdown caused many a household to redecorate, re-purpose, and refresh their homes. At Horsham Museum & Art Gallery it was no different.

Our lockdown closure provided the ideal opportunity for a major refresh of our displays and galleries before we welcomed back visitors in October 2021. Take a look at what’s happening over the next few months.

Radically Different Landscapes by Robin Alexander Elliott

Radically Different Landscapes

The next exhibition in the Art Gallery will open in January with Radically Different Landscapes by Robin Alexander Elliott. A selection of Robin’s artworks will be on display which combine geometric shapes and bold colours with realistic elements to depict the landscapes of Sussex and Kent. The exhibition will run from 20 January to 2 April 2022.

17 February will see our first gallery changeover in the Domestic Life Gallery and the display will detail domestic life during the Second World War in Horsham and across the home front.

Eleanor Coate Photography

Spring exhibition

The Spring exhibition will showcase the work of Royal Horticultural Society, Gold Medal winner Eleanor Coate. Photographing flowers in macro and close-up, Eleanor’s photographic prints follow the traditions of botanical illustration from the 18th century.

The exhibition will run from 15 April to 18 June 2022.

I have been visiting the Museum for 70 years, but when I went back after the refresh it felt like the first time.
