Angela Loader, award winning local artist, previously showed her pictures in Emsworth Museum
Angela has been inspired by the fast and ever changing developments all around us to combine
the history of the town with the beauty of the surrounding landscape and coastline.
She aims to capture moments in time, embracing contrasts and highlighting the fading light and natural colours of the day.
Original paintings, prints and a new range of greeting cards will be available during the exhibition.
October 6th – November 11th Commemorating 100th anniversary of the end of WWI
This exhibition will be a memorial to all the men of Emsworth who died during this war in many different locations around the world. Local men were lost within a month of the start of the conflict right through to within 3 days of it ending and so this exhibition will be a history of the war from the perspective of the people of the village.
