Finally found time to think about Kate Tryon. We spotted her painting of Aldbourne ages ago on a visit to the Richard Jefferies Museum at Coate Water and it’s taken this long to add her to the blog! In the intervening time, the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery have conserved the Tryon collection, and by chance used the Aldbourne painting to illustrate a fab open access conservation session on their website in October 2016. I must go back to see if the painting is back on display again at Coate.

Read the latest news about this project, including the appointment of an interim Director. Keep up to date with the exciting exhibitions and news from the existing Swindon Museum & Art Gallery including The Bomford Gift (until 1 July 2017):
Between 1943 and 1976, local art collector and landowner HJP (or ‘Jimmy’) Bomford gave 21 works of art to Swindon. These were instrumental in encouraging Swindon to establish a modern art collection for the town. Bomford’s gift included drawings and paintings by some of Britain’s best known artists, including Graham Sutherland, Ben Nicholson, LS Lowry and Henry Moore. This exhibition brings together many of the works Bomford gave to Swindon to celebrate his generosity and vision.
