Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is holding a series of free lunchtime tours of the artworks on show at its new location - the Civic Offices in Euclid Street.

Visitors at the Civic Offices will have the opportunity to learn more about the objects and artworks in the Museum and Art Gallery's new Landscape and Longing exhibition.

Landscape and Longing is described as an exhibition exploring the relationships between human beings and nature, through paintings, ceramics and natural sciences collections.

A spokesperson added: "Together, they consider how creativity and collecting reflect a human longing to connect with the natural world."

The exhibition includes the latest paintings to come into the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery collections through the Contemporary Art Society.

The artworks are displayed on the Ground Floor of the Civic Offices, in the inner foyer and Committee Room 3. These temporary display spaces are in use while Swindon Museum and Art Gallery relocates to the First Floor of the Civic Offices.

Members of the public are welcome to view the exhibition, Monday to Friday between 9am - 5pm (excluding Bank Holidays).

Frances Yeo, Swindon Museums Manager, said: “I’m delighted that we’re able to offer such an interesting range of tours for our latest exhibition Landscape and Longing.

"The exhibition really is a ‘must see’, and the new tours will help bring to life the themes behind the exhibition, and enable visitors to focus on the stories of some of the works featured.”
