New Exhibition at Lyme Regis Museum

News Release 24 August 2012

Lyme Regis Museum’s new exhibition, ‘... where I intend to end my days’  by local artist Jennie Pearson, explores family links between Lyme and early pioneers of her native Western Australia.

Jennie’s hand- and machine-stitched textiles make the connection with reference to Lyme people such as Sir Richard Spencer who, in 1833, set sail to become Government Resident of the fledgling settlement in Albany, South West Australia.

A preview of the exhibition on Saturday, September 1st, begins at 6.30pm with drinks and an introduction by Adrian Pearson, ‘Sir Richard Spencer: a corner of Lyme in Western Australia’. All are welcome, free.

The exhibition runs from September 1st to October 15th.
