National Trust Croome – Acorn to Oak Exhibition

The Acorn to Oak Exhibition is a collection of over forty works by Worcester based artist, Jilly Oxlade-Arnott, celebrating 125 years of the National Trust. It includes a brand new collection, especially created for the exhibition, depicting some of the National Trust’s most popular and inspiring buildings; alongside other new paintings and a selection of bold pop-art inspired work.

This exhibition, commissioned by the National Trust, is a celebration of magnificent buildings and architectural heritage which are still in existence due to the continued conservation work of the National Trust.

Coronavirus Update
The National Trust will, where possible, open as many of its gardens and parks for free, but close its houses, cafes and shops to help the nation fight the spread of the coronavirus.

Due to the closure of the main house at NT Croome I have created this page so you are able to visit the exhibition, virtually! If you would like to purchase original works, limited edition fine art prints or greeting cards please call/text 07897 347007 or email

All original watercolour and ink artworks are double mounted and framed (measuring 16″ x 20″ or 406mm x 508mm) ready to hang. The minimum bid price for each artwork is £420 with 20% going directly to the National Trust.
