The Charity Pop-Up Gallery with Garden, in the beautiful village of Shere, is a celebration of art and nature.
It also raises awareness of, and funds for, mental health and nature conservation with Oakleaf and WWF.
The free summer exhibition ‘Feeling & Matter’ will show the diverse creative output of the English painter, sculptor and writer, John Rich. Having exhibited alongside David Hockney and many others, he went on to have critically successful one-man shows in London and exhibited with the Young Contemporaries and the London Group. He then struggled with bi-polar and sadly fell into obscurity.
This exhibition presents many works never before shown in public and features those kindly lent by Lord & Lady Levy.
The garden complements the gallery and reflects the life-long relationship between the artist and his muse.
Open July to September.
12noon to 6pm at weekends.
