…The Secret Staircase.
Author Michele Roberts and artist Caroline Isgar will be transporting their exhibition: The Secret Staircase to Frome next week. It was inspired by tokens discovered at the Foundling Museum, London, that were left with babies by mothers so that that they could recognise them later on.
Roberts has re-written nursery rhymes, exploring a daughter’s feelings towards her mother, and has also produced first-person narrative prose. Isgar has created beautiful, touching art work – featuring familiar imagery from nursery rhymes, myths and fairy stories – enchanting, yet sometimes sinister.
The exhibition will open on Thursday 8 March 6-9pm. Come along to meet the artists and view the art work.
It will then be open daily from 10am – 4pm until Sunday 18 March.
