Maridon Museum “Collectors” Series

The Maridon Museum in Butler, just North of our Fine Barony in the lovely Shire of Sunderoak, is hosting a series of monthly talks on Thursday evenings about collecting and collectors.

If you’ve never been to the Maridon, they have a lovely collection of Chinese and Japanese artworks, plus a room full of European Meissen porcelain including a set of Commedia del Arte figures.

This seems like a lovely way to find your way up there to meet some people and see the museum. See the Maridon’s web site and the flyer for more information.
