Go along to Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich on the 19th of May between 2pm and 4pm and admire how animals have been depicted by different artists throughout their artwork.
Join the Curator of Art, Emma Roodhouse as you look through a variety of different artist’s works from our collections. You’ll be able to see majestically painted horses to a sculpture of a chicken, and you’ll see for yourself firsthand the various ways in which animals have been portrayed in all types of different art mediums across the ages.
While looking at these works of art you can get involved and talk to Emma Roodhouse and find out more information about the artwork, artist or the museums collections in general.
This event is also a great chance to view a large variety of different artist’s work from our museum stores that you might not otherwise usually get a chance to see. From Maggi Hambling’s ‘Rosie the Rhino’ to 19th century horse racing prints, there is sure to be something that will catch your eye!
Emma Roodhouse, Curator of Art at Colchester and Ipswich Museums said ‘This is a chance for people to see the diversity of our collections and bring out some artworks that haven’t been shown together but are united through the theme of depicting animal life’.
Drop in anytime between 2pm to 4pm at Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich to admire this unique collection. There is no need for you to book, and this is also a FREE event.
Christchurch Mansion, Sloane Street, Ipswich, IP4 2BE
