Exhibitions

The Club is pleased to be able to use its premises and resources, along with its renowned archive of mountaineering reports, books, art and artefacts to host and curate exhibitions that celebrate mountain history and culture. As well as spotlighting the work of contemporary artists and academics, the Club has also worked to mark key mountaineering anniversaries; bringing together records of the past to keep our history alive and engaging for climbers and the wider community alike.

Individual exhibitions may vary, but most take place at our Charlotte Road Club House.

A full list of past and upcoming exhibitions is shown below.

The exhibition by AC associate Rowan Huntley opens Tuesday 8th November before the evening lecture at 7pm.

The fantastical rock formations and brilliant light of the eastern Dolomites will feature in an
exhibition of paintings at Charlotte Road this November.


‘Dolomites - Portrait of the Pale Mountains’ will portray the uniquely sculpted peaks and
chameleon-like colour transformations of this incredible landscape which have provided
much for Rowan to work with over the last year.


Including Sassolungo/Langkofel, Sella, Civetta, Pelmo, Tofana, Cristallo, Sorapis, Antaleo
and Tre Cime di Lavaredo/Drei Zinnen to name but a few, this is a collection of work to stir
memories and inspire adventures!


Exhibition opens Tuesday 8th November with a Private View at 5pm before the evening
lecture at 7pm.
