Discover our new Malthouse gallery and its first exhibition in partnership with the De Morgan Foundation.

New Gallery

In May we launched our new dedicated exhibition space in the old Malthouse. Used by the Mander family as a school room and then a squash court the Malthouse Gallery means that we can now display even more beautiful things. Our new partnership with the De Morgan Foundation will be for the next ten years, with our exhibitions refreshing every two years.

Our first exhibition

Working in partnership with the De Morgan Foundation we have a new exhibition from their collection of art and ceramics to Wightwick. William and Evelyn De Morgan were one of the most energetic and creative couples of the late 19th and early 20th century. He worked with William Morris, supplying Morris & Co with iconic red lustre tiles and decorative ceramics. She studied art at the Slade School and developed a vivid technique in the later Pre-Raphaelite style.

The exhibition explores what motivated them as artists, looks at their creative process and showcase how they reacted to the socio-political changes of their era as they strived for a better, more beautiful world. On display until early 2019.
