RIC Members’ Day: Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro, 22nd November 2014

Members’ Day is the annual occasion when the Museum is open only to Royal Institute of Cornwall Members and their guests to enjoy the special displays and tours the Museum has to offer. Representing the artists involved in 'Terrain', showing in the Philbrick Gallery, I was invited, with the ceramicist Jenny Beavan, to take part with informal conversations about our work and the relationships with some of the RCM’s collections, as well as their work’s relevance to the wider landscape of the region.
