Dickens & the Artists

This exhibition, the major visual art exhibition of the international Dickens 2012 festival, was significantly the first exhibition at the restored Watts Gallery to show work by contemporaries of the gallery’s founder, George Frederic Watts OM RA (1817 – 1904).  Having worked with Watts Gallery to secure extensive media coverage for the Gallery’s reopening in 2011, it was important for the Gallery to gain recognition for its new changing exhibition programme, a key factor in establishing a reputation as an international study centre for the exploration of Victorian art, social history and craft.

 

Extensive national media coverage was secured and the exhibition received more than 14,500 visitors.

 

Andrew Churchill, Marketing Manager at Watts Gallery said:

“We have worked with Tamsin Williams at Wigwam PR for many years and never fail to be delighted by her commitment, enthusiasm and her willingness to go the extra mile.”
