We’re working towards bringing some of Samuel Palmer’s paintings back to the Darent Valley, along with related artworks by other artists. Watch this space for updates including dates and location.

Visitors and residents of the Darent Valley will be able to enjoy the rich visionary artwork of Samuel Palmer in the landscape that inspired him. Also included in the exhibition will be contemporary artworks that explore similar themes.

Palmer painted aspects of the Darent Valley, including its river, almost 200 years ago; many key sites are still recognisable today. But how will the landscape look in another 200 years?

With the climate and natural world changing rapidly because of human activity, reconnecting with the land and finding belonging has never been more important. Will you be inspired to create art that reflects your connection to the Darent Valley and its river?
