To celebrate Bridget Riley's 90th birthday this year, this exhibition will explore the artist's love of sight and how it surprises us. Delve into the historical roots of Bridget Riley’s art and her working methods, through a selection of exemplary striped, curved, colour and black-and-white works. Examples will be drawn from each decade – from the 1960s to the present day – with oils, prints and preparatory colour studies forming a medium scale retrospective that will explore the artist’s enduring exploration of colour, structure and perception.
Join us as we explore Riley’s overarching campaign, undertaken over 60 years, to continually reveal fresh and new ways of seeing.

Visitors to this exhibition will be able to view the selection of delicate drawings, which represents some of the highlights of The Devonshire Collections for the first time and exclusively, en masse.

Artist Robert Senior has worked extensively with people suffering from mental illness and those with special needs, including several years with Mother Teresa's Missionary of Charity Brothers.
These areas of experience have informed ithe spiritual nature and purpose of Senior's artistic practice.
The work in this exhibition is intuitive, drawing on memories and imagination rather than observed sources such as models and photographs. This encourages the bringing into play of apparently random elements or symbols, adding subconscious significance and depth to an existing image.
This campaign will help raise awareness and demonstrate the art world’s solidarity with the cause whilst, at the same time, highlighting artists and artworks from The Ingram Collection that explore the current climate crisis.
The art world has the power to influence, galvanise and make a real difference. We aim to harness this power to save our most precious planet at this crucial and dangerous tipping point we find ourselves in.
For the sixtieth anniversary of WWF and in the year of COP26 (the UN Climate Change Conference), when the global conversation is centred around climate change and what we are doing to stop it, curatorial practice Artwise launches Art For Your World, an all-encompassing and inclusive project to raise money for WWF and awareness around the critical environmental issues of our time.
This exhibition is a legacy of ‘The Bank Gallery’ displays in the Art Fund Prize Gallery (2012-2019), showcasing a selection of artworks in multiple disciplines by like-minded, professional artists in conversation around the theme of “Adaptability”.
Exhibitors: Suzy Abrahams, Anya Charikov-Mickleburgh, Orsi Cowell-Lehoczky, Wilf Frost, Dani Humberstone, Vivien Phelan, Heather Tobias, and Ann Marie Whaley.
This exhibition explores self-awareness and our ability to look within to understand ourselves and others, in the matrix of society. The artist says:
"There is still a major and significant area of experience that is beyond the scope of words. The phenomenal aspects, the contemplative, and the experience of calmness - there are yours, or mine. This is far from exhaustive; blueness, redness, pink etc. Pink on green or yellow on red."
