Microsculpture

22nd July - 7th October - Open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays - 10am – 4pm. Closed Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays.

The startling photography of Levon Biss reveals the astonishing and stunning detailed form of insects with breathtaking clarity. 

The images, created in collaboration with Oxford University Museum of Natural History, present insect specimens as never before, using large-format photographic prints to expose their beauty at microscopic levels. Combining art with science, visitors can view the images up close and discover more about these fascinating creatures through their shape, colour and sculptural forms. 

Alongside these exquisite photographs, will be a rare opportunity to view a select display of insects from the outstanding collections cared for by Hampshire Cultural Trust . With our planet the subject of much current debate, come and find out why the survival of insects and protection of our eco-systems are more vital now than ever.

Marvellous Mechanicals

15th Oct - 19th December Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays - 10am - 4pm

An exhibition for all ages which features modern automata, or mechanical sculptures, with clever mechanisms and often humorous ideas! The automata are on tour from Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, whose exhibits have recently been enjoyed in China, Korea, and the USA, with the collection being seen by over ten million people worldwide over the past 30 years. 

Come along and marvel at these comical masterpieces which come to life at the push of a button. You can also get involved, as some of these machines need you to get hands-on and understand how they work for yourself. 

The exhibition also features a display of amusing circus themed artworks by talented illustrator Sam Hiscock.
