Each artist displays a real affinity with their chosen materials with the natural and recycled a strong feature of this exhibition.

New Displays at the John Gray Centre Museum

Date: 1st Mar 2015 - 1st Mar 2018

Location: John Gray Centre, 15 Lodge Street, Haddington, EH41 3DX

Time: 10:00 - 17:00

Cost: £Free

East Lothian Council Museums Service and the John Gray Centre are pleased to announce three brand new displays at the John Gray Centre Museum.

All are planned to be on show for around three years as part of the permanent galleries. At a Sense of Community there is a display of costumes associated with birth, death and marriage. The role of the community in marking these milestones is showcased alongside costumes and objects.

Five truly beautiful dresses are displayed including a mid 1900s little black dress, a christening gown, two wedding dresses, one dated to 1934 and another to 1911 and finally a mourning gown dated to the 1840s. They are richly detailed and amongst the most precious items held in the Museums Collections.

A historic banner from the Craighall Friendly Society highlights the story of Friendly Societies in East Lothian and the vital role they played in providing some insurance against hard times. The banner is beautiful and fragile. It was created around 1831 and shows symbolic figures and text hand painted on a gold silk backing.

This is the first time it has been on display since major specialist conservation funded by Museums Galleries Scotland. In the section, Life and Work a new display case highlights stories from East Lothian’s food and drink industry alongside objects and documents from local producers. It includes the story of a local market gardener who whose business was so successful that he loaned a large sum to the burgh of Musselburgh.
