It is your last chance to see the First Fleet artwork currently on display in our Images of Nature gallery. The gallery closes from Monday 25th February and reopens on Wednesday 27th February with a brand NEW theme.

 

Indian artwork will be the theme for the next year, and every three months the artwork on display will be changed. This enables visitors to see other examples from our sizeable collection and allows us to protect our collections from any potential environmental damage such as light or temperature.

 

There will be a blog in March all about the forthcoming theme and examples of the items to be displayed, but in the meantime here is an taster to wet your appetite!
