Pop-Up exhibitions at Crewkerne & District Museum continue with a showcase of work by local artists. The ‘Best of Britishness’ exhibition by artists, Karen Dupe and Alison Mitchell opens from today, on Fridays and Saturdays, 11 am – 2 pm. Both of these artists engage with the natural world in their own unique way. Their colourful and skilled interpretations of British wildlife in original paintings, prints and cards, can be viewed at the museum in Market Square until Saturday August 29th at 2 pm.
Museum Administrator, Janet Harris said: “We are having fun planning these pop-ups and creating a safe environment for all. We are operating free entrance to our pop-up exhibitions for all visitors, but we always welcome donations.” Controlled access to the museum’s special downstairs exhibition room may mean that visitors have to wait outside the building for a short while before being admitted, giving them the opportunity to look at the objects and/or photos on display in the reception window. On entry to the museum, social distancing measures will be in place and hand sanitiser available. As of tomorrow, August 8th, it becomes mandatory in England to wear a face covering when visiting museums, galleries, other indoor tourist, heritage and cultural sites, unless a person is exempt for age, health or disability reasons.
