Even more wonderful Art to see at the Maeldune …. !!!



We are delighted to welcome back our old friends The 96 Group. This very well respected group of local artists have been working and exhibiting together for a number of years and have built up an intensely loyal following.  This exhibition includes works by June Cox, Pat Boss, Coral Skelsey and the late Linda Muncey - all with their own very distinct styles, in a variety of mediums, including Paintings, Prints and Creative Textiles.  Their exhibitions are always very well worth seeing – don’t miss this one!  The dates on the poster below are a little different, as the Exhibition now runs for an extended period, from 24th August to 2nd October inclusive.




And hot on their heels will be an exciting new Exhibition from an artist showing with us for the first time – Connie Flynn.  ‘Finders Keepers, Tales in Textiles!’ is an exhibition of textiles made on a residency at Sumburgh Lighthouse, Shetland in June 2015.  Connie was inspired by her research of the lighthouse keepers and their families who lived and worked at the lighthouse. She recorded their tales in textiles, showing here at the Maeldune from 5th to 23rd October inclusive.


Meet the Artist!  Connie will be at the Maeldune on Saturday 6th October to give a talk on the exhibition from 2pm.  Admission Free - All welcome!


Did you hear us?  Maeldune on Air! BBC Radio Essex's Quest treasure hunt programme came to the Maeldune on Sunday morning (16 September). We were the first site to be visited and then after solving the clue, the team went on to visit three other heritage sites in the town -it was great fun and great promotion for us all and for Maldon as a whole.  If you missed it - listen again on i-player – here is the link:


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!
