Had a brilliant first visit to @museumartcraft this week. They were showing the controversial work of Eric Gill with this response by @CathiePilkington. I was almost didn't visit, knowing of Gill's biography, but didn't know when I'd next be in that part of the country again. I thought the museum's handling of his work was sensitive and respectful, particularly the empowering text art in the reading room made by Survivors' Network clients. The show was challenging but I was glad to visit and ponder the question as to whether artwork can be valued for its artistic merit when created in such a depraved context. As well as the show, I also enjoyed a walking trail through the artistic village of Ditchling led by one of the trustees - such a beautiful place! I'd love to go back again for future shows #ditchling #ditchlingmuseum #artandcraftmuseum #ericgill #cathiepilkington #sculpture #carving #Britishart
