Art

Do you have any pictures in your house? Or saved on your mobile phone? What do you think they say about you?

Art can be a visual record of our lives and a creative response to the world around us. The human instinct to create and express our imagination has been with us for thousands of years.

The art collections in Colchester are housed in Hollytrees Museum and the Museum Resource Centre.

The majority of the art collections on display in Ipswich can be found in the Wolsey Art Gallery in Christchurch Mansion. You can see more of the Colchester and Ipswich collections on the Your Paintings website.
