‘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.
Exhibition runs January 9th to February 20th, 2021
