Workshops planned to tie in with exhibition

The Friends of Brechin Town House Museum held a meeting last week in the museum surrounded by the splendid, newly opened art exhibition of work by Hetty Haxworth and Rachel Owen.

This exhibition had over one hundred guests attend the opening evening and Hetty will conduct two silk-screen workshops for children during the exhibition which runs until October 1. It is advisable to contact the museum for further details.

“The museum’s chameleon-like potential to be transformed into a modern and refreshing gallery space, comparable to salon galleries, is very evident and in this respect Brechin can hold its head high when compared to other more prestigious museums,” explains a Friends spokesperson.

The David Waterson collection which has been on show for a year is scheduled for display between any further exhibitions.
