Creative Wiltshire

20 November 2017 – 17 March 2018

10am – 4pm, free entry, Chippenham Museum

An exhibition celebrating North Wiltshire creativity

Creative Wiltshire, Chippenham Museum’s first exhibition in its newly opened gallery space, features the work of many influential artists who moved to North Wiltshire during the 20th century for work, study or a simpler life. For them the area provided new inspiration for their creativity, producing artwork directly responding to the local landscape.

The exhibition features works by well-known artists such as Howard Hodgkin and Robin Tanner displayed alongside examples of local pottery and silver by Graham Watling.

The majority of works on display have been acquired as a result of the Creative Wiltshire project. To find out more about the project visit

Look out for a series of talks and events running alongside the exhibition in the New Year.
