2020 Exhibition: ‘All the Fading Landscape’

2020 marks the tercentenary of the birth of Gilbert White, author of ‘The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne’. As well as his close observations of local wildlife, Gilbert monitored the weather, commenting on the haze from a volcano that erupted in Iceland, for example.
With the planet in climate crisis, and wildlife in freefall, it is timely to remember Gilbert White and his love of and respect for the natural world. 'Exhibition 2020: All the Fading Landscape' is open indefinitely by arrangement only .
This ‘gallery’ contains images and details of sculpture, ceramics, lettering and original prints by regular and new artists, some of whom have created work specially for 'All the Fading Landscape', in acknowledgement of Gilbert White and his legacy. There is so much we can all do to reduce our carbon footprint and save our flora and fauna for future generations. I hope some of the pieces in 'All the Fading Landscape' will inspire us all to greater endeavour.
 Contact the gallery for further information.
Prices do not include delivery/installation.
