Coastal Connections

19th June - 8 October 

This major summer exhibition will explore artists’ connections to the coastal landscape and how this is reflected in their work.

Featured work from the Bishop Otter Collection will include Alfred Wallis’ Boat (c.1930), Christopher Wood’s Tréboul Harbour (c.1930), William Scott’s Harbour (1950-51), John Craxton’s Fisherman and Net (1951), William Alexander Burns’ Small Harbour (c.1967), Richard Eurich’s Solent Angler (1975) and Edith Lawrence’s Docks, (1929).

Work will also be drawn from private and public collections to show how both celebrated and lesser known artists be they resident or visiting the coast were inspired by its cliffs, beaches and harbours.
