Modern Victorians: Recording and Classifying
6 March – 9 May 2021
Winged by Clive Wheeler
Is my own personal collection of winged insects, but as a modern Victorian I have avoided the Formaldehyde.

The Essence of Trees by Gustavo Espinosa
7 September – 12 October 2020
The essence of trees is wood; heartwood, sapwood and bark… These images are made from photographs of a wide variety of trees: growing trees, dying trees, trees cut down or fallen, rotting wood returning to the earth. The photographs were made on walks in the countryside, in ancient forests and once-landscaped parks.
