Gallery of wonder heads out on the road

A mobile exhibition of extraordinary works of art will be touring the agricultural fairs and border-shepherd shows this summer.

Following the success of The Great Boxing Booth Revival, which travelled around fairs and fetes in 2012, Arts&Heritage takes to the road once more, launching The Gallery of Wonder on Tour at the Northumberland County Show in Bywell on Bank Holiday Monday, May 25.

The Gallery Of Wonder will travel across the area in a distinctive, customised, dark grey wagon, covered in symbols of curiosity and mysticism.

Within is an exhibition of new works of art created by seven nationally and internationally-known artists who have responded to the idea of wonder.
