Abbey Walk Gallery – Bringing Art Right Into The Heart Of Town


The new year is always a busy time at Abbey Walk Gallery and 2015 promises to be no exception, starting with the arrival of an exciting new touring exhibition – The Forest of Possibility.
It’s an exploration of that most humble and most essential of media, paper and of its origins in the heart of the forest.

The forest is a place of vast potential, where myths and fairy tales are created. Sinister or enchanted, it is a space for the subconscious,
a place for both dreams and nightmares.

Featuring seven artists from all around the globe, the exhibition invites you to enter a world of extraordinary encounters with the forest, its ancient trees and the animals and plants that live there.
