New Town Map inspired by local artists’ painting.
Local Suffolk-based artist, Tom Crittenden, is the Bury St Edmunds Adnams store manager that took up painting during the Coronavirus lockdown. He said lockdown ‘fast-tracked’ his art and that it provides a form of escapism from modern-day ‘turbulence.’ Tom continues to paint now, selling many of his pieces online (https://www.tomcrittendenart.com/)
Our latest version of the town map (link to town map) features an image inspired by Tom’s painting, Cherry Blossom on Crown Street. The painting features the well-known cheery trees in blossom on in the town centre – showing off their beautiful colours and focusing on the tranquillity.
