Most artists hold previews for their exhibitions and you are invited to join them. You can also join the mailing list for invitations. Artists often sell their work - providing you with an excellent opportunity to buy contemporary pictures, sculpture and craft.
The museum is pleased to be open again. Our current exhibitions are from the museum’s collections:
Between Two Worlds
This exhibition explores the art created during the tumultuous period of the 20th century when communities and artists were affected by war and persecution. Colonial governments deprived communities of the cultural identity. In the turmoil of Europe, artists were persecuted, interned and displaced. Even within the open-minded art world, they still faced discrimination and prejudice.
Between Two Worlds continues until Saturday 6 February 2021.
Stories of Hidden Treasure from the Peak District’s Past.
In 2019 photographer Nick Lockett was commissioned to produce an exhibition to accompany the British Museum’s touring exhibition Hoards: a hidden history of Ancient Britain. Here, once again, are the photographs and the micro-stories which you enjoyed. This commission was made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Stories of Hidden Treasure from the Peak District’s Past continues to Saturday 26 November 2020
The exhibition programme has been reviewed. We've rescheduled most of the exhibitions for later in 2021 and 2022.
