Special Exhibition: The Lie of the Land

01 November 10:00

Runs until 27 August 2017. An exhibition of landscape paintings from the museum’s collection that have taken inspiration from West Berkshire’s beautiful and varied countryside, dating from the 19th century until the present day.

The artists range from unknown to local amateur enthusiasts to several who have exhibited internationally, including at least three who have exhibited at the Royal Academy. These include respected artist and former mayor of Newbury, Christopher Hall, nationally known impressionist painter Frederick Hall who lived in West Berkshire for some 26 years, and internationally renowned local artist William Henry Gore, who is buried at Newtown Road Cemetery.

Our second floor galleries host a series of special exhibitions, along with Gallery 5 which can be hired to display original artwork, sculpture and crafts.

Entry to West Berkshire Museum is free but donations are most welcomed.
Wednesday – Sunday 10am -4pm.
