Lyme Bay Arts exhibitions resume as museum opens

CELEBRATING its one hundredth anniversary year, Lyme Regis Museum reopened last week and visitors can now view ‘Telling Tales’, the third in a delayed series of exhibitions by Lyme Bay Arts members in the museum’s Rotunda Gallery.

It is comprised of pictures, words and whimsy created by author and illustrator Caroline King for three of her children’s books – ‘About a Bee’, ‘Along Came a Seagull’, and ‘The Fish Lizard of Lyme’.

These three nooks were inspired by Lyme Regis and made using the traditional mediums of egg tempura and pencil.

To see these original works and meet the animals and people Caroline depicts, visit the museum before June 19, Wednesdays through Saturdays, from 10am to 4pm.
