wood_engraving_of_The_Emperor___the_Nightingale_by_Elizabeth_Jamieson__Odling2C.jpg

Musicians and Artists at Work was the subject of the 2020 exhibition. It encompassed two interests very close to the heart of its donor, Nance Anderson: music and art. Many of the pictures on display were in the original bequest, and the exhibition also included a number of significant works on loan from private collectors, which the Trustees gratefully acknowledge. These images are all copyright the Anderson (Local Collection) Trust.
