Exhibition: Collecting and Connecting – objects from China and Japan

Collecting and Connecting: Objects from China and Japan
Exhibition at Dumfries Museum

Beautiful, intriguing objects from East Asia will be on display in this new exhibition at Dumfries Museum from April 1st to September 1st. Paintings, silks, books, shoes, vases and more will all feature as will a film created by a local resident using Japanese calligraphy.

The focus of the exhibition is on the objects and who collected them, how they came to be in our museum collection and what they tell us about the people of the time and the connections Dumfries and Galloway has with China and Japan.

Created in partnership with the National Museum of Scotland and based on their research, this exhibition also includes interactive opportunities for visitors of all ages.

Open Tuesday to Saturday from April 1st to September 1st. Free entry.
