Nature's Art: Gardens in Leicester and Beyond


Nature's Art: Gardens in Leicester and Beyond

A bold and colourful exhibition exploring arts and crafts inspired by nature.

Visitors are invited to rethink their ideas about what gardens are, who they are for, and the role they can play in shaping our identities and experiences. Featuring a range of objects from ceramics and clothes to watercolours and welly boots – Nature's Art showcases the dynamic history of gardens in the region.

Familiar names feature, from the designer William Morris, alongside lesser-known Leicester-based artists such as the watercolourist Isabella Charters.

This summer exhibition reveals how gardens throughout time have functioned as sources of pleasure, inspiration, and healing.
