Be prepared for the extraordinary.

Gallery and invited artists have been asked to re-interpret and respond to the theme 'The

Garden of Earthly Delights'. The phrase, referring to the centre panel of Hieronymus

Bosch's famous triptych, has given full scope for diversity in both interpretation and chosen

media painting, drawing, sculpture, assemblage and collage, ceramics, prints, fibre art

and installation work.

Over 40 artists have produced stunning works, some working directly from the Bosch

work, with all it's monstrous creatures and lustful humans. Some focus on re-appropriating

according to the current climate and issues, in reality or imagination, while others enjoy the

lyricism and romance of The Garden in nature. This is certainly a hugely enjoyable and

absorbing exhibition.
