Bexhill-to-Bexhill: Conversations with Annie.

Louise Kenward is Artist in Residence at the Museum every Thursday. Last year she followed Annie Brassey's travels to all the other Bexhill's around the world and her mess
ages from her travels are displayed against a world map in the Costume Gallery corridor. Opposite it she is mapping her recollections and souvenirs.

 She says, "Thanks to a Heritage Lottery Grant, I am delighted to have now started working at the museum as artist in residence, revisiting my journey through Annie and her collection. I will be in the galleries every Thursday working with a place and object(s). These are open sessions for the public to engage with me and the project and where I hope to be able to bring the journeys and connections with the museum to life.

Each week I will revisit one of the 15 places I crossed paths with Annie, when I sent a postcard and wrote a letter. Using mementoes I brought back, memories and photographs, combined with Annie's journals and objects, I will try to connect with Annie and the voyages I followed.

A series of workshops and talks will soon be scheduled.

I am updating my blog to include sessions at the museum if you want any more information or to follow my progress."
