On The Beat: Stories from 1914-1918Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 1:00am to Friday, May 15, 2020 - 1:00am
This special exhibition showcases work by students and ex-students from Middlesex University’s illustration department, who will use the medium of graphic novels to bring the stories of the home front to life. Research into local police records of the period has uncovered some fascinating, humorous and challenging stories illustrating life at home for ordinary people and the police, as well as soldiers back from the trenches.
Special school visits are available by appointment – please contact the museum: email@example.com or by phone on 01279 651746
Copies of the accompanying Graphic Novel : ‘On the Beat during the Great War’ are available for sale from Rhodes.

Art Space-Pastel landscapes
Local artist Carol Wylde started art training four years ago with the newly formed art group at Stansted U3A and an art medium consisting of pure pigment that has been around since the Renaissance - pastel, appealed to her the most.
Mixed and blended directly on the paper, pastel errors cannot be covered so it can be very challenging but this wasn’t an obstacle in Carolyn’s case who courageously embraced the encounter with this technique.
Her landscapes will take us to faraway places like Nebraska, Costa Rica, Africa, Burma, but also close to home - Dorset and Saffron Walden.
Making pastel her primary medium was both bold and successful.
We hope you will enjoy viewing her art in Art Space in March 2015.
