Whether you’re a seasoned artistic traveller or apprentice explorer, our Voluntary Gallery Guides, offer that extra insight and revealing glimpse into the artwork, the era and the artist.
With few exceptions, artists have an interesting circle of influences: their circle of friends with whom they exchange ideas; the spirit of the times which influences their view of the world; and their own character and outlook which is reflected in their work.
This 30 minute 'lunch-time' tour will give you an in-depth look at a selected artist and their world.
