Exhibitions

In our spacious Gallery on the top floor, we host a changing programme of five exhibitions every year which have a connection with our Cumbria home. Some exhibitions break the bounds of the Gallery and take over the centre, so you may find art in unexpected places. Each exhibition is curated with a leading cultural organisation or a creative community around us. We are proud to exhibit work by Cumbria’s world class artists and craftspeople, often see here for the first time. This strong relationship with artists means we can show creativity at its most diverse, as well as reflecting life in the landscape.

We also hire some of our exhibitions for touring – find out more here.
