Mayor of Winchester Cllr Jane Rutter hosted a private view at City Space in Winchester Discovery Centre on 9 February to celebrate Mayor’s Choice, her personal selection from the collections at Hampshire Cultural Trust. The Mayor toured the stores with Sam Butcher, Ross Turle and Helen Rees from the collections team to select works of art and interesting artefacts, and then Sam curated the exhibition and worked with Mark Barden, City Space exhibition co-ordinator and the venue team to install the exhibition.
Mayor’s Choice is an annual exhibition which puts the collections on display for the public to see and enjoy. The exhibition continues until 26 February. There are fascinating watercolours showing local landscapes and buildings as they appeared before the age of photography, and lots of family-friendly activities for half term visitors.
