Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum Review

Now housed in a brand new building, completed in 2013, the museum and art gallery demonstrates that from the 1880s onward, Cheltenham was at the forefront of the Arts and Crafts movement. There are fine displays of William Morris textiles, furniture by Charles Voysey, and wood and metal pieces by Ernest Gimson. Decorative arts, such as Chinese ceramics, are also represented, and British artists, including Stanley Spencer and Vanessa Bell, make their mark. Other exhibits focus on local archaeology and history; one is devoted to Edward Wilson, who traveled with Robert Scott to the Antarctic on Scott's ill-fated 1912 expedition.
