'New Horizons' Exhibition 30 August 2005

    If you have not yet taken the opportunity to see Manx National Heritage’s ‘New Horizons’ exhibition, come along to the Manx Museum, where your last chance to see this fascinating display of contemporary Norwegian Art will be Saturday 3rd September 2005.

    ‘New Horizons’ is one of the many projects born out of the signing of a cultural agreement between Rogaland County Council and Manx National Heritage in 2002, which was attended by Their Majesties King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway.

    Kirsty Neate, Curatorial Services Officer for Manx National Heritage said: 'New Horizons' Exhibition

    New Horizons’ is a contemporary incarnation of the historic links between the Isle of Man and Norway, which stretch back more than 1,000 years to the arrival of the Vikings, who have left their traces throughout the Island in political, social and cultural life. The exhibition pulls together some of the most talented artists from five Norwegian coastal counties and includes work across various mediums of installation art, painting, photography and film”.

    The ‘New Horizons’ exhibition will end on Saturday 3rd September in order to make way for the major re-display of the National Art Gallery; a new display of artwork from the National Art Collection opening at the Manx Museum on Saturday 24th September 2005.

    The Manx Museum is part of the award-winning Story of Mann and is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Admission is free of charge.
