Unlocked: Female Artists of the River & Rowing Museum, 1812-2012


An exhibition of work from our collection, created by female artists between 1812 and 2012, all of which was rediscovered through the progress of our Collections Audit Project. This essential project has given us the chance to closely examine our collection, allowing us to rediscover some fascinating objects.

Having realised that there was only one work of art created by a woman on permanent display, the team have pulled together examples of works created by two centuries of women. This exhibition seeks to highlight their important contribution to art of and around the Thames, and to ask the visitor to question why women and their art are not always given the spotlight.

The exhibition can be found upstairs in our River Gallery, and is included in general admission.
