With reports of full campsites and  accommodation in favourite destinations like the Lake District being fully booked this year, more than ever we are aware of iBritain’s contrasting landscape. Our summer exhibition Vacation Landscapes presents a range of work by artists on our website.

The printmaker Brian Hindmarch is one of the many artists on our site who have work in exhibitions this summer. Brian is exhibiting at St Helen’s Church Denton Yorkshire later in August. Paul Kenny currently has a solo exhibition at Southport’s Atkinson Gallery and Anna Lambert’s exhibition at London’s Contemporary Ceramics gallery – opposite the British Museum 40 YEARS IN CLAY – continues to 21 August 2021.
