Exploring hidden and mysterious bodies of water with paintings by Mary Anne Aytoun-Ellis and words by Clare Best.

During the drought of 2012, writer Clare Best and painter Mary Anne Aytoun-Ellis went in search of bodies of water that are concealed, forgotten or overlooked.  They found places rich in history, wildlife, cultre and myth.  Through "Springlines", Mary Anne's paintings and Clare's words celebrate the variety and vitality of this water.  Their work explores some of the most evocative hidden corners of the English landscape - from dewponds to ancient wells, from old clay pits to furnace ponds, from chalk springs to man-made pools.

For this exhibition Clare and Mary Anne have developed some new work for their "Springlines" project, reflecting the overlooked water sources of Tunbridge Wells. Inspired by the collections at Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery and walks throughout the Borough, their paintings, photographs and poetry capture the essence of our natural and industrial heritage.  The exhibition also features objects, prints and paintings from the Museum collection.

The exihibition will run from 9th June - 14th October 2017
