To mark the 100 year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act this week that first gave some women the right to vote, we are showing 100 artworks by women from the Ipswich collections.

Discover works by artists from the 1700s to the present day, including the work of Suffolk suffragette Amy K Browning.

Other highlights will include paintings by Rose Mead, an active member of the Society of Women Artists, Anna Airy, the first woman president of the Ipswich Art Society, and sculptures by Ellen Mary Rope.

Come and view a unique collection of First World War pastel sketches by Blanche G Vulliamy that reveal London’s streets. Contemporary artists Maggi Hambling, Jelly Green, Hayley Field, Claudia Boese, Jacquie Utley and more will also be on show.

This exhibition is funded by the Government Equalities Office.

Exhibition admission free.
