Creative Wiltshire: A Celebration of Art in Wiltshire
Saturday, January 19, 2019 to Sunday, September 29, 2019
Cost: Normal admission charges apply.
Creative Wiltshire is a Heritage Lottery Funded project running from 2014-2019 working to collect and celebrate the art of the county’s creative people. Some works have been collected over many years, some more recently gifted or purchased. This is a unique opportunity to see pieces only very recently acquired by Salisbury Museum, including paintings by Rex Whistler and Wilfred de Glehn; bronze sculpture by Jonathan Wylder; and etched glass by Sir Laurence Whistler. The Swindon Museum and Art Gallery have also been involved in the project, and loaned many beautiful artworks to showcase the talents of artists like Joe Tilson, and ceramicists like Katherine Pleydell-Bouverie and Patricia Volk. The result is an eclectic and visually stunning celebration of art in Wiltshire.
