Watts Contemporary Gallery

Watts Contemporary Gallery, sited above the Shop in the Visitor Centre, presents a varied programme of exhibitions throughout the year.

Opening times

Open daily, 10am - 5pm. Free entry.
Closed 24 - 26 December and 1 January. Closing at 4pm on 31 December.

We showcase a wide range of contemporary artists making painting, prints, ceramics, sculpture and craft. All works are for sale and help support our Art for All programme.

The dynamic, curated exhibitions support local, new and emerging artists and craftspeople. We also exhibit established artists of national and international merit. All artists invited to exhibit, resonate with the heritage of our unique Arts & Crafts site. And often, they reflect the approach of George and Mary Watts, who pushed the boundaries of fine art, craft and design.

We have presented work by many local artists including Celia Lewis, Diana Croft, Yeside Linney, Grace Ellen and Jennifer Jokhoo. As well as internationally known Norman Ackroyd RA, Alexander Creswell and Anita Klein RE.
