Over 25,000 visitors and hundreds of sales later...

A huge thank you to all those who have visited us at Houghton Hall sine July 13... A Fine Balance comprises more than 40 artists and makers who are working at the confluence between the sustainable and natural, and the artificial and man-made in our landscape.
If you cannot make it to see the exhibition, there is a handy interactive exhibition walk-through - see https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=JrjpBAgYsvx
Our walk-through has hotspots for you to click through to view the artists work and read more about them.
