Easter stamps, greeting cards at Il-Ħaġar

Lent to Easter is the title of an assortment of stamps and cards showcased on level 1 at Il-Ħaġar museum in Victoria.

The exhibition forms part of the Gozo Ministry’s ‘Easter in Gozo’ programme. The stamp section at Il-Ħaġar is run by the Gozo Philatelic Society (GPS).

Most of the stamps were issued by small islands, using images from paintings in museums and churches. Theissuers include Anguilla, Nicaragua, Niue, St Lucia, Ras al Khaima, Cook Islands and Penrhyn.

The Easter greeting cards are quite old, dating from the mid- and early 20th century.

They are mostly Italian and some were colourised manually at a time when multicoloured printing was non-existent. Some of the cards are reproductions of paintings, featuring biblical scenes.

Visitors to the exhibition can freely obtain copies of the GPS quarterly periodical. These full-colour periodicals include a variety of articles, not limited to just stamp collection.

Il-Ħaġar cultural centre is open daily between 9am and 5pm. Entrance is free.

Two exhibitions celebrate launch of GPS covers catalogue

Il-Hagar Museum in Gozo is the venue for two exhibitions celebrate the successful launch of the first catalogue of the wide range of covers produced by the Gozo Philatelic Society since its foundation in 1999.

The full colour detailed publication, compiled by Mark-Anthony Poulton, has been well received since its launch.

The GPS is very well known for these productions, designed by resident artist Anthony Grech, to commemorate events and for stamps connected with Gozo. The GPS said that “regular subscribers include those who are not really philatelists but are more interested in Melitensia.”

That on level -1 shows over twenty of the original designs used for these productions. This continues till mid June. As usual visitors can pick up copies of the GPS Newsletter, crammed with assorted articles. Il-Hagar, which is located in St George’s Square, Victoria, is open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, without any entrance fee.

Social philately of Napoleonic period in Malta at Il-Hagar

A ‘special’ exhibition marking Il-Ħaġar museum’s 10th anniversary year is set up by the Gozo Philatelic Society. The exhibition features social philately items connected with the Napoleonic period in Malta. The display is also a prelude to the society’s silver jubilee next year. It offers a range of documentary originals and reproductions connected with the presence of Napoleon Bonaparte in Malta in 1798. These items are complemented with several covers and stamps that admirably help the visitor understand the situation in that period. Several items on display are from the personal collection of the Gozo Philatelic Society president, Jesmond Borg.

The permanent exhibits at level 3 include correspondence between archpriest Saverio Cassar and the village representatives during the months that Gozo remained autonomous after the French garrison was forced to retreat from the island in 1798.

Visitors to the exhibition can obtain copies of the society’s full colour periodical which includes material that goes beyond simple stamp collecting.

Specially prepared personalized stamps and covers, supported by MaltaPost, will be available. A complete collection of these will also be on display. Further incentives will be packs of free stamps and copies of the GPS periodical for all.
