Showing from Good Friday 29th March 2013
On show in The Beacon’s Harbour Gallery, Treasures is a unique opportunity to see an intriguing exhibition of museum paintings and artefacts not normally on display.
Our Harbour Gallery walls are adorned with paintings from The Beacon’s Fine Art Collection and the room is filled with artefacts that will give a snap-shot into the Copeland of yesteryear and the lives of the people who lived here.
Averil Dawson, who has been a Visitor Host at The Beacon for over 16 years, has been charged with selecting items for display.
“We’re just completing an inventory project which means I have the chance to look at everything, so the choice will be very eclectic” said Averil. “We have chosen objects from the collection that people will want to remember or relate to.”
The exhibition will also give visitors a taster of what is on show inside the main displays of this award-winning museum.
Treasures opened to the public on Good Friday 29th March. It will be open 7 days a week during the Easter school holidays and will then be available during The Beacon’s normal opening hours; Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 4pm and Sunday 12 to 4pm
Entry to the exhibition is FREE.
