Exhibitions at GroundWork Gallery are all about environment. Each exhibition follows a particular environmental theme. These are all wide-ranging, tackling materials or concepts, and have both local and global relevance. There are often a number of artists involved and we find this to be a good community-forming development. It is both good for enriching ideas about the environment, and provides variety for the viewer. Each exhibition is accompanied by a range of events. These involve discussion, lectures, workshops and can be both thought-provoking and practical.

Subjects for exhibitions about environment lead on beyond the time of their main display to become campaigns for a more environmentally engaged society. For our programmes and in the interests of increasing their impact, we partner with a wide range of organisations. These range from the wildlife charities, the Woodland Trust, the Civic Trust, Climate Change groups such as XR, Culture Declares Emergency and KLimate Concern; King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council, and above all with concerned individuals. Contact us to find out how you can be involved in this work.
