The 2018 Abingdon County Hall Musuem Guide is now available, and makes a very colourful and handy guide to the coming year.
The first new exhibition of 2018 opened yesterday, Saturday 13th January, and runs until 18th March, and is called Myth, Mystery and Music.
Local artist Caroline Ritson goes in search of sightings of the Green Man in hedges, flowers and foliage, and when she has found an eye or face, she paints it in great detail. It is fun to try to find the Green Man in her pictures. Caroline also has pictures of Morris Dancing and Music Festivals.
Alongside these are paintings by another local artist, Barbara Payne. Some of her paintings portray the mysteries to be seen near The Oldest Road (The Ridgeway), including the White Horse, Wayland Smithy, and Blowing Stone. She also has paintings of musicians, and produces ceramics, prints, and books of poetry.
The Magical MG, seen here, is always there in the museum gallery.
