This exhibition brings together the work of ten UK based artists who share a fascination with the natural environment.

Trees feature heavily in this group show and at its heart  is a reconstructed woodland, that incorporates light, sound and ambient smells, bringing the outside in.

Slow down and step inside this immersive installation that aims to explore the calming, energising qualities that spending time in nature can provide.

Exhibiting Artists: Neil Bedwell, Frances Carlile, Jack Doyle, Maggie Hargreaves, Julie James-Turner, Arron Kuiper, Katie Lenegan, Anthony Ratcliffe, Helen Slater & Lucie Wilson.

Opening Event: Saturday 16 September. Visit to enjoy free activities inspired by the natural world.
