From Punjabi to Polish, Czech to Chinese, Farsi to French – more than 50 languages are spoken by Gloucestershire’s multicultural population, who hail from diverse destinations that span the planet.
To celebrate this cultural diversity, Nature in Art is holding a special exhibition entitled The World on Our Doorstep, from Tuesday 16 September to Sunday 12 October 2008, when visitors will be able to literally globetrot as they stroll through the various galleries housed at the museum in Gloucester.
Visitors will be able to take in a stunning array of nature-inspired artwork from each of the countries or cultures represented by the languages spoken in Gloucestershire, browsing through eclectic examples that span a variety of periods and mediums.
