'The way in which these artists are engaging with and taking inspiration from the landscape around them evokes the work of our founders, the artists G F and Mary Watts, who were similarly inspired by tranquillity and beauty of the Surrey Hills.'

Dr Cicely Robinson, Brice Curator at Watts Gallery – Artists' Village
