This winter at Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village, discover two inspiring new exhibitions in their temporary and contemporary galleries.

Art & Action: Making Change in Victorian Britain (December 2 2020 to March 21 2021) is the first exhibition to focus on the Victorian roots of art activism.

Featuring key works by Sir Luke Fildes, William Morris and G F Watts, the exhibition explores how, in the Victorian era, art came to be recognised as a powerful tool that could enact social change, improve lives and ultimately shape the future.

In Watts Contemporary Gallery, their annual show In Print returns for its fourth year. It features twice the usual number of printmakers in order to support more artists and makers during this challenging time.

IN PRINT: 20/20 Vision (2 December 2020 – 21 February 2021) showcases work by 20 artists working in a diverse range of printmaking techniques, with all works available for you to purchase.

You can also purchase Watts’s Winter Holiday Make Kit, containing everything you need to personalise a festive decoration to hang up at home.

Don’t forget to head to the Tea Shop for delicious seasonal food and drinks to eat in and takeaway, and search for stocking fillers and delightful gifts in the Watts Shop.
