Alfred Russel Wallace © George Beccaloni
Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) is famous for independently discovering the process of evolution by natural selection alongside Charles Darwin, yet today few remember this great Welsh scientist. Originally shown at National Museum Cardiff in 2013, this exhibition explores Wallace’s life and work, and in doing so raises awareness of this remarkable man.

Natural history specimens – including bugs, such as butterflies and beetles, birds and more – will highlight the work of Alfred Russel Wallace.
A display of work by Graham Sutherland (1903 – 1980) will also be on show in the gallery.
The gallery showcases artists' interpretations of landscape, taken from
