Picture of the Month

January 2021
by Sadie Brockbank

Sculpture of a dear with trees growing out of its back
Forest Deer
Mixed media
90 x 108 x 34cm

I have chosen Sadie Brockbank's Forest Deer as the Picture of the Month for January. I love how this wise animal carries both the sheltering trees and roosting birds, on her travels through the forest. The work reminds me of the interwoven strands of the natural world and the fragile balance within. I find the sculpture both strong and delicate. Thank you Sadie.

Museum Highlights

Keeping with the theme of our Online Exhibition "Celebrating our Town – Discover Reading", this Museum Highlight was painted in 1968 in the Newtown area, although the road gets its name from much longer ago.
