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.

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.
