On Paper

25 June 2022 - 17 July 2022


A mixed exhibition featuring contemporary artists united by the use of paper forming the basis of their works.

Typically the starting point and medium for many artists, paper can be a way to not only generate ideas, but become the work itself; a versatile, humble material with many possibilities.

This focussed show presents different perspectives and subject matter - animals, still life, depictions of landscapes and curious figures, made up of hundreds of meticulously hand cut paper forms - much more than meets the eye, combining traditional and experimental approaches such as drawing and collage.

Caledonian: The Scottish Exhibition

26 March 2022 - 17 April 2022


Since the early 90s, Thompson's Gallery has always had strong ties with the country north of our English border, and we believe there is no better time for a revival of Thompson's historically popular 'The Scottish Exhibition' which we are excited to share with our clients to celebrate the opening of our newest gallery in Harpenden and as our first official, curated show. Once a staple in Thompson's Gallery's annual calendar, the Scottish Exhibition is a chance to showcase the very best in Scottish artistic talent.

This exhibition will be exhibiting a wide range of artworks and artists. It will be spotlighting our core list of Scottish artists which has come to exist over the past four decades, plus an array of talents new to us, curated as a statement on the consistent strength of Scottish art.

This exhibition boasts an eclectic mix of subject matter from depictions of coastal scenes, portraits and whimsical wonderlands.
