    Sidney Nolan Trust

    Charity

    The Sidney Nolan Trust have an exciting programme for 2022, including a number of exhibitions, trails and workshops with full details on their website.

    Open from 31 March – 31 October in 2022, the exhibitions and events present artwork from the charities own collection, as well as exhibitions by leading and emerging contemporary artists. Exhibitions are displayed in our 17C tithe barn at Rodd Court, a Jacobean manor house, which was the last home of Sir Sidney and a remarkable, relatively untouched example of 17C architecture.

    The Trust also runs education and residency programmes, which support children, young people, adults and artists to learn, exchange ideas and create.

    Visitors are also welcome to explore the gardens and grounds, which include woodland walks. The estate sits in the beautiful Hindwell Valley on the English Welsh border close to the picturesque Welsh market town of Presteigne and the internationally renowned town of books, Hay on Wye.

    The Trust is a registered charity and cares for the former home, artist’s studio and 250 acre estate of the late Sir Sidney Nolan, who was a leading artist of the 20C. The Trust also owns a large collection of Nolan’s works, his library and personal archive. Most famous for his Ned Kelly series of paintings, today we celebrate his life-long experimentation and passion for creativity as well as his love for the environment.

    Tea, coffee and cake is also available.

    Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome in all outside spaces.

    Why not extend your visit by staying at our lovely self-catering property, Orchard Cottage.
