Whilst enjoying your day out at Weston, this dynamic and ever-changing corner of our world is worth a visit, whether you have an eye for artistic creations or simply enjoy seeing something new and different.
Originally built in 1767, the Art Gallery was unused for many years before becoming the subject of a total and most sympathetic restoration, thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Now set beneath a splendidly characterful old beamed roof, you’ll find the Art Gallery in the building that houses the Granary Brasserie & Bakery and here you’ll discover monthly selling exhibitions by acclaimed artists from the UK and beyond, along with items on loan to the gallery from private collections. Visitors to the gallery can enjoy a coffee and homemade cake in the Granary Bakery or lunch in the Brasserie.
The exhibitions in the Granary Art Gallery are organised by Weston Park’s Curatorial & Learning Department.
The Gallery is also available to hire for Group and Solo shows. Find out more about hiring the Art Gallery.

Also currently on display in the Granary Art Gallery:
Baldassare Peruzzi – The Nativity
Granary Art Gallery is the current home of Baldassare Peruzzi’s Nativity, which is on loan to the Weston Park Foundation for a six month period.
Best known as an architect, the enigmatic Peruzzi was also a fine painter and proficient draughtsman, whose designs were distinctive for their grace and detail. He was both a classical scholar and keen student of mathematics and both of these interests are borne out in his paintings; notably in the present work in his preoccupation with spatial relationships between the figures of the Virgin and Joseph and the varied landscape beyond.
We are delighted to be showing this important renaissance work in the Gallery where it may be seen, free of charge, daily from 11am until 4pm.
