Our Summer of Art at the Maeldune ….. Come inside and enjoy the cool and tranquillity of this lovely old building.



Our current Exhibition opens on 3rd August and continues until 21st August.  We are delighted to host our first showing by the ‘Totham Ten’, a group of artists based at the John Doubleday studio in Great Totham.



The Mind's Eye is a diverse collection of etchings, linocuts, paintings and pastels - you are invited to see the world around you through the pens, paints and cutters of local artists and discover that it isn't always what it seems.


Sheila Bates, Sheila Chan, Myrna Fahie, John Garbut, Sue Polden, Tony Sabin, Vivienne Smith, Caroline Spong, Martin Sweeting and Jean Woods come from differing backgrounds with varied interests and fields of expertise.  But they all share a love of printmaking, largely inspired by the late Ron Sims at whose classes they first met. Following his death the group decided to stay together and continue their practice, as a workshop.


The group has previously shown at the Mercury Theatre's Digby Gallery in Colchester, Essex Wildlife Trust's Abberton Centre, the Purleigh Bell and on Mersea Island.


Artists will be in residence on certain days during the exhibition period, providing an opportunity to discuss their work and see them in action.  The Exhibition runs from 3rd to 21st August inclusive.  

While you are here, enjoy the wonderful Maldon Embroidery – which celebrates and portrays in vivid and colourful detail 1000 years of Maldon’s eventful life, starting from the famous Battle of Maldon in 991.  


Also - our Craft Gift Shop is full of lovely craft items from our wonderful local craftspeople and our regular displays continue - from The Maldon Society and the Maldon and Burnham Museums.  


We are FREE to enter, and open Tuesday-Saturday, 11-4.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
