Robert Perry: The Fields of Battle 1914-1918

26th October - 18th December 

To commemorate the centenary of World War One, we are delighted to be hosting a major exhibition by Midlands based artist Robert Perry. He is a regular visitor to the Somme and Verdun, working on the Western Front battlefields for over 20 years in his mobile studio. The atmospheric images in this exhibition depict the landscape as it is today, where nature and time have begun to erase the scars of war.

On show for the first time will be a series of works commissioned for the exhibition, depicting Messines and the links with Cannock Chase in Staffordshire.
