We are pleased to host an art display by local mother and daughter artists Molly Rockley and Colleen Collins in our tea room.
Molly started painting 60 years ago experimenting with various mediums and became obsessed by oils. She particularly loves the vibrancy, consistency, colours and smell of oil paints. Her specialities are cityscapes, landscapes and people from around the world.
Collen is self-taught and specialises in waves/rocks/seascapes inspired by our stunning Norfolk coast and Cornwall. She is stimulated by colours, shapes and textures and uses many mediums particularly acrylics and inks.
The display runs until 30th July and can be viewed during the museum's normal opening times.There is no charge for viewing the exhibition but why not take this opportunity to visit the museum where normal admission fees will apply
