Inspired by Lamport Anniversary Art Exhibtion

Wednesdays and Thursdays until 22nd August

An exhibition to celebrate Lamport Hall and its 50th anniversary of being a charitable trust brings together work by 19 local artists produced for and inspired by the Hall itself!

Organised by Northants and Rutland Open Studios and Lamport Hall, the exhibition in the historic stableyard (which recently featured in Netflix’s The Crown series) runs until 22 August and gives visitors a chance to explore what Lamport means for local artists and the impact the Hall has had on the local arts scene in recent years. There is a varied display of paintings, textiles, glass and mixed media on the theme of Inspired by Lamport, and the exhibition is free to enter and open on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week.

Katie Boyce, director of NROS said “Lamport Hall has been a huge supporter of NROS for the last few years and we are proud to help them celebrate their 50th anniversary with this exhibition which showcases a few of our 300+ members. It’s a little teaser for our September festival when we’ll be taking over and filling the stableyard with hundreds of beautiful works from our local artists!”

Mark Herrod, Executive Director at Lamport Hall said “Lamport Hall is a huge supporter of the arts in all forms and we have loved hosting the central exhibition for NROS for the last few years, so what better way to celebrate that than with an exhibition to show what this beautiful building and gardens have inspired in artists locally. It’s a wonderful exhibition and I’d encourage everyone to pop in and have look, and grab a coffee at our newly refurbished café at the same time!”

The exhibition is open 10am-3pm every Wednesday and Thursday from 3 April to 22 August in the stable yard and entry is free, although there is a charge for entry to the house and gardens.
