A vibrant and colourful display of original art is currently on show at Andover Museum. “Hidden Treasure” is a collection of work by local artist Roma Nichol, exploring spiritual Nature themes, and our links to the past. Batik paintings feature Anglo Saxon, Celtic and Egyptian designs, as well as giant butterflies, dragonflies and more. A wide range of canvas paintings explore the hidden side of Nature, including The Green Man, and a White Hart. There is even a sculpture created from ancient pottery shards found by the artist.

Museum Curator Jenny Stevens said “ Having worked on a number of exhibitions with Roma in the past where she curated other people’s art, it’s great to see an entire exhibition of her own work. Hidden Treasure is both a great showcase for Roma’s talent and a great talking point for visitors “

There is a “Hidden Treasure Trail” activity for younger people with a prize draw for one lucky winner who will receive their own “Hidden Treasure”. Roma will also be running Batik workshops at the Museum for those interested in getting creative.

Local artist Roma, will be displaying her work until 16th January and the exhibition is open during Museum opening hours Tuesday to Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturdays from 10am – 4pm.
