Made by Hand
LC Gallery Members’ Exhibition
with guest juror Nicola Treat
January 9th to February 20th
‘Artisan is defined only as someone who makes things with his or her hands. That's all. Therefore, by that definition, pretty much all artists are artisans. However, not all ar- tisans are artists’...hmmmmm, confused?
What about this definition...
’An artist is a person who performs any of the creative arts. This can range from painting to music. An artisan, on the other hand, is a skilled worker who makes things by hand’.
There have never been clear lines drawn between artist and artisan...and this debate always makes good dinner conversation and a good subject for this year’s Members’ Exhibition.
