Medieval Made Modern

Come and join us when artists Harriott Brand and Alison Salter share their works inspired by Boston's magnificent Guildhall and the St Botolph's.

Wednesday 1st March - Saturday 27th May 2017

Boston Guildhall

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday

10:30am - 3:30pm, last admission 3pm

 

Inspired by Boston's magnificent Guildhall and the Stump, Lincolnshire artists Harriott Brand and Alison Salter have created artworks relfecting on Medieval life and the connections to modern times.

From foods to feasts, fairs and fleeces, feathers to fashions, the fens and floods, faith and the Church - all have medieval remains and vestiges which we may not realise.  Seeking to interpret and show the differences and similarities, Alison and Harriott have used mixed media and genuine artefacts alongside objects from the museums collections.

Whilst only a peek at medieval life, this is an ongoing collaboration for the artists who will continue to add to this collection of their works.
