Following Mary Stella Edward’s death in 1989 the Ackland and Edwards Trust was formed to foster the artistic legacy of the two artists. The trust continues to work closely by supporting The Burton Art Gallery and Museum and the National Trust on topics relating to Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards and the archive.
In conjunction with this collection, in 2014 the Ackland and Edwards Trust entrusted the Burton Art Gallery and Museum with Mary Stella’s Archive, a treasure trove of correspondence, diaries, sketchbooks and photographs relating to the life and work of the two artists Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards.
In line with this aim the cabin hosts several artists residencies and open days throughout the year, for all of the details please go to.
