The Collection

The list below includes works from our own permanent collection as well as many which have been generously loaned to us on long term by individuals and organisations. Our varying exhibitions always include a selection of these works, augmented by short and medium term loans which enhance and emphasise the subject matter of the show. Occasionally, works on medium term loan (eg two years) will not be exhibited, especially works on paper where annual total exposure to light should be kept below statutory levels. Any works which are not on show in the Gallery for a particular exhibition may be viewed by appointment, whether these be from our own collection or on long or medium term loan.
