If you’d like to discover a little bit more about our exhibition, you can now enjoy a relaxed tour with one of our gallery team.
Coming from a range of creative backgrounds, our tour guides will uncover the themes of the exhibition from their own unique perspective, providing information on the artists and exhibition themes. You’re welcome to ask questions, share your thoughts or simply enjoy learning more about the exhibits.
Our exhibition, Mariner: A painted ship upon a painted ocean, is inspired by one of the most influential poems in the English language, The Rime of The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), and looks at what connects us across history and the present, from the desire to travel, to the role of intuition and imagination, the making of mistakes and the process of recovery and redemption through knowledge and understanding.
