The exhibition, named ‘Shadows in the Sun’ started six days ago (Tuesday, 24 April) and will be on display until Sunday, 17 July.

Cyanotypes are the oldest photograhic printing technique – and they were first used for producing botanical images.

Anne Guest, the artist behind the exhibition, has combined ‘botanical specimens’ with other imagery to create ‘contemporary cyanotypes’, in a bid to show a narrative about the importance of declining natural habitats across the United Kingdom.

All of the works which are on display in the exhibition is up for sale.

Museum opening times

The Museum is open from 10.30am to 4.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

But, on Thursdays, only the downstairs area and tearoom are open.

Admission is free into the exhibition, but donations are welcomed from visitors.
