We’ve opened our very first office and tiny gallery in the beautiful port of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. If you ever visit this part of the world, we are 1 minute from the ferry tucked into a little alleyway, right next door to the destination ice-cream shop!
Our current mini-exhibition is entitled ‘A Special Island’ which marks the Isle of Wight as internationally recognised Island, a UNESCO Biosphere. This puts us on the same footing as amazing places in other parts of the world, including Rapa Nui (Easter Island) in the Pacific.
Visitors can discover the vibrant images captured by local photographer, Pete Johstone, in his West Wight People and Place project. They can also view our holographic experiment made possible by the digital creativity of students at University of Winchester. And take away bookmarks with links to The Earth Museum platform and our Isle of Wight and Rapa Nui (Easter Island) Digital Heritage Maps.
This year we are open on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, 2-4pm, until the end of October. Next year we are planning a monthly programme of mini-exhibits and events. If you are interested in being part of this, please do get in touch.
