'CRAFT OR ART ?', 14 Nov 2015 - 14 Feb 2016
Bushey Museum invites you to a new exhibition, in which the work of five local artists and craftsmen and women encourages us to re-examine the age-old debate: where does art begin and craft end? Do they overlap? Should they be considered of equal merit or is one superior to the other?
This selling exhibition which opened in November runs until Sunday 14 February 2016. The Museum, in Rudolph Road, Bushey WD23 3HW is open Thursdays to Sundays 11am-4pm. Admission is free. See full article and further images
