No arduous drives or train journeys required to see great art this autumn. Exhibitions from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and London’s The Southbank Centre open this weekend at Henley’s River & Rowing Museum; and both are free with admission.

Edward Lear: Travel and Nonsense, on loan from the Ashmolean Museum, displays the nonsense drawings and verses for which Edward Lear is so well known, as well as his extraordinary paintings and sketches of landscapes and nature.

Eduardo Paolozzi: General Dynamic F.U.N, a Hayward Touring exhibition from the Southbank Centre, is a stunning collection of 49 pop art screenprints and photolithographs, created between 1965 and 1970.

Eloise Chapman, Head of Collections and Exhibitions, says that the River & Rowing Museum is thrilled to be working in partnership with some of Britain’s best museums to bring great art to Henley-on-Thames.

"We’re so excited to be working with Museums like the Ashmolean, and we can’t wait to share these visiting exhibitions with Henley locals and visitors from further afield,” Ms Chapman said.

Travel and Nonsense and General Dynamic F.U.N. mark the start of the River & Rowing Museum’s new programme of visiting exhibitions. Next year they will host exhibitions from artists such as Henri Matisse and David Hockney, so keep an eye on their website: http://rrm.co.uk
