Summer Artwork on Wivenhoe Station

In the 3 poster cabinets on Platform 2, and in the Booking Hall cabinets, we exhibit art in various kinds of media, produced by local artists, both amateur and professional. The exhibits are usually viewed from Platform 1 across the railway tracks, to cheer up the morning commuters and delight/challenge/inspire travelers awaiting their trains. 

Artwork by Maggie Bernstein

There is also a bookshelf containing free books for you to borrow on your journey. Why not bring us some new ones in exchange, when you next visit the station.
