An exceptional collection of watercolours will go on display from today to the public at one of Britain's leading boarding schools. It's not often that the average school boy can drop in to see a Turner or a Cotman inside the school gates but Harrow School has been lucky to have over 200 exceptional quality works by figures from the golden age of English watercolours.See more details >

at the National Portrait Gallery from 21 January - 11 July 2010
A Bath based gallery is celebrating a successful first year, with another thought provoking exhibition at the Octagon Chapel in the hub of the city.
Aged 25, gallery Director Jemma Hickman opened bo.lee gallery at 1 Queen Street in January of 2009, quickly gaining a reputation as one of the leading contemporary art galleries in the South West, despite a falling economy and closures for some long-standing galleries.
To mark her achievement and the 1st year anniversary, Jemma is presenting “A Visual Dialogue” – her most personal curation of works to date, on the 30th January until the 8th February 2010.See more details >

2010 Exhibitions Programme
The Developing Process
The sculptor’s education in drawings and photography
Mezzanine Gallery, 10 October 2009 – 10 January 2010
The Developing Process explores the ways in which sculptors were taught to think three-dimensionally from the late nineteenth century through to the 1960s. Although this exhibition highlights two very different archives, and with them the radically different ways in which students were taught art, it also reveals some underlying continuities in the basic tenets of art education.See more details >

Objects of contemplation
Natural sculptures from the Qing dynasty
Gallery 4, Henry Moore Institute
12 December 2009 – 7 March 2010
This small but exquisite exhibition is concerned with the remarkable rocks collected in 17th-century China, and asks important questions about them: when does a rock become a sculpture, for example? How important is the role of the person who notices the rock in the first place; the person who finds it, cleans it, polishes it and places it on a pedestal?See more details >
