Underwater 2023 is an exhibition of contemporary art inspired by ‘Impressions of the Diving Museum’.  All forms of media are represented including paint and sculpture to video and textiles.
Unusually, the artwork is displayed amongst the museum’s artefacts.

All of the pieces on display are also available to be purchased. It is a wonderful opportunity not only to support our local artists but also to buy an affordable masterpiece to take home.

‘Underwater’  is one of our most popular annual events. It is on for only two days. We hope to see you there.

There is no extra fee to see the exhibition – normal museum entry fees apply.
