Two week charity exhibition to open at Bury St Edmunds Manor House...

A manor house which was formerly a museum in Bury St Edmunds is to reopen its doors to the public for a charity exhibition of Georgian paintings.

 

The Manor House, on Honey Hill closed as a museum in 2006 before being restored to its original use as a private residence. For two weeks next month though it will host an exhibition to raise funds for medical research into childhood brain tumours as well as the Mayor of St Edmundsbury’s chosen charities Acute Kidney Injury and Gatehouse.

 

The paintings from the St Edmundsbury Art Collection were chosen by George Carter, who for 25 years has hung exhibitions for the Royal Collection, in collaboration with the council’s heritage service.

 

Mr Carter said: “This exhibition is designed to show how an early 18th century house might have been hung with portraits and landscapes in oils as part of the interior decoration of the period.

 

“This collection of interesting portraits of local families compromise the range of dates that such a house would have had - documenting the family history and enriching, in this case, the decoration of one of England’s best provincial town houses.”

 

The exhibition will be open on select days from April 12 to 26. Donations of £5 per person are suggested and booking is now open at theapex.co.uk or call 01284 758000. There will also be free children’s events - call 01284 748720.
