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.

The River Tyne: an exhibition by Tom Ewing

Date: 11th Aug 2016 - 4th Sep 2016

Location: Hecla Gallery, Cockenzie House and Gardens

Cost: Free

An exhibition by award winning artist Tom Ewing.

Prestonpans artist, Tom Ewing, has been granted a Visual Artists Award from East Lothian Council in partnership with Creative Scotland. The award supports artists in developing their creative practice. Tom has chosen to focus on the River Tyne as his subject matter. His new series of paintings reflect the changing landscape of the river as it runs through East Lothian. 

Tom Ewing, a former pupil of Preston Lodge High School, subsequently graduated from Edinburgh College of Art. Today he is a recognised muralist, and he has produced over 30 works of  public art. These can be found both internationally and in his hometown of Prestonpans, where he has been responsible for a number of the murals on the Prestonpans murals trail.  Tom devotes most of his time to his paintings; scenes of East Lothian that are alive with his familiarity and love of its coastline and countryside. Tom works mainly in oil on canvas.

Opening hours are Wednesday to Friday 10.30am to 4pm, Saturday and Sunday 11am to 4pm. For more information visit www.heclagallery.co.uk
