On behalf of Charlie Barton and the Directors of the Watts Gallery, we would like to invite you to join us this midsummer night for an exclusive conversation between artist Charlie Barton and Johnny Messum, Director of Messums Wiltshire. 


From photography to painting, objects to cinema, artists have always been at the forefront of documenting our relationship with the moon. Charlie Barton is one of the most original artists working today and perhaps more than any other painter has made our closest lunar neighbour her muse and metaphor. Her work is currently part of the Watts Gallery exhibition "Moonscapes".    All this and more we look forward to discussing in conversation and we very much hope you will be able to join us in support. 

Car parking available on site
