Mon-Sat 10-4 t 01654 703355 The Watts Gallery Artists' Village just off the A3 south of Guildford in Surrey should have a place in the itinerary of anyone looking to enlarge their artistic experience as it has the nomen of a ‘national gallery’ in a village setting. Substantially restored since 2008, bringing further buildings into the public domain as one of the few purpose built artist exposition spaces in the country, a visit at any time would be rewarding. Currently on show is an exploration of the celebrated Victorian poet, Christina Rossetti's connection with the visual arts, not only (famously) artists’ images of her as a subject but also those images inspired by her words. In addition rarely seen examples of her own drawings are on view illustrating how she was so closely connected proactively with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood as both model and poet. A trip to Compton beckons. P H THUMB nail Dante Gabriel Rossetti ‘Portrait of Christina Rossetti’
