The exhibition celebrates the extraordinary natural environment of the Broads that makes the area such a rich source of inspiration, relaxation and enjoyment for artists, naturalists and holiday-makers alike. At the heart of the exhibition is work from the Norfolk Museum Service collections of some of the most renowned Broadland painters from the 19th and early 20th centuries: Charles Harmony Harrison, Stephen Batchelder and Arthur Patterson. And works by contemporary artists reveal how this landscape continues to be a rich source of inspiration. Loans from the Museum of the Broads, Norfolk Heritage Centre (including photographs by PH Emerson and John Payne Jennings) and private collections, as well as natural history and archive sound recordings, add to the story of this unique landscape and its importance to the region as a place for both recreation and conservation. <br /> http://events.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/public_events.aspx?id=1931 Fishmas Trail! <br /> 21 December 2014<br /> 12:00 - 16:00 <br /> <br />Find out what fish do at Christmas in this nautical trail about the adventures of a shoal of fish in their search for Father Fishmas.
