Interior Life: Portraits and Private Space
Until 8 November 2015
Interior Life celebrates a selection of portraits from The Wilson’s collection. These works span more than 300 years from the 17th to 20th century and show recurring themes of privacy, contemplation and meditation. This exhibition has been curated to draw parallels between the pieces on display and those in the ARTIST ROOMS On Tour Bill Viola exhibition.

Exhibition gallery, second floor:
Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2015
3 – 25 October 2015
Organised in partnership with the University of Gloucestershire, this exhibition invites submissions from all over the world and attracts students, emerging and established illustrators. Entrants this year have responded to a brief around the theme of “Tales of the City”, and consider lost cities, mythical cities, cities of the imagination, cities of the future…

Exhibition gallery, third floor:
Bill Viola
3 October 2015 – 7 February 2016
Three thought-provoking works by celebrated contemporary video artist, Bill Viola. Viola’s works focus on universal human experiences – birth, death, the unfolding of consciousness – and have roots in both Eastern and Western art as well as spiritual traditions.
