Seven artist/makers from Dorset and Devon will be happily ‘Crossing the Line’ between craft and art for a contemporary exhibition on show at the Town Mill’s Malthouse Gallery in Lyme Regis

Jennie Hanrahan, Brendon Murless, Caroline Parrott, Barbara Green, Nicola Dennis, Jeanne Goodridge and Sue Calder will be showcasing their skills in ceramics, sculpture, metalworking, printing, painting, illustration, photography and textiles.

Through their unique and inspiring work, they aim to question what, if any, tangible distinctions exist between being an ‘artist’ or a ‘craft maker’.

Is it the material they work in?

Is it the object’s ultimate use?

What about the maker’s intentions?

The show, which runs until Wednesday, August 9, will offer a tangible and lively debate on these issues and encourage visitors to express their own opinions on the supposed border between craft and art.

Over at the Courtyard Gallery, until Wednesday, August 16, Lyme-based figurative artist Justin Clark will be holding a solo exhibition of his colourful drawings and paintings, called Life in Colour.

As he said: “Each picture on show shares a struggle between sharing the awe that I feel about the human form and distilling those four-dimensional graces into two.”

Justin’s work has been exhibited many times in the Mall Galleries, London, and is in private collections across the world.

Both Crossing the Line and Life in Colour will be open daily from 10.30am-4.30pm, admission is free, and further information can be found by visiting www.townmillarts.co.uk
