Room 6 Exhibition: ‘No Hands John’ / 8th November – 29th November
‘No Hands John’ is an exhibition commemorating the life and work of John Todd, a memorable, local character from Harwich who sadly passed away in January 2019. Art was his true passion and was something that he carried with him through the highs and lows that life threw his way. He created hundreds of pieces, often of idyllic landscapes from home and abroad, and his work will now be shown for the first time in its fullest form, to commemorate the man who was known and loved by the town.
