Exhibitions for inspiration

Galleries and exhibitions are a great source for inspiration and to discover new artists.

All around us are sources of inspiration and learning, the best of those sources are galleries and exhibitions. Not only do they provide inspiration and help us to discover new artists and methods, but they help us learn more about the craft, art or heritage of a subject. We have found a handful of exhibitions that are wonderful and would spark creativity!
