Museum Exhibition: ‘... Where I Intend to End My Days’

News release from Carole Halden, Marketing Manager, Lyme Regis Museum:

Jennie Pearson’s textile exhibition ‘... where I intend to end my days’ has opened at Lyme Regis Museum. It celebrates the connection between Lyme and the early colonial history of Australia, in particular drawing on the story of the Spencer family of Lyme Regis.

At a preview of the exhibition (on Saturday September 1) the artist’s husband Adrian Pearson, who has researched the history of the early pioneers, gave a short talk ‘Sir Richard Spencer: a corner of Lyme in Western Australia’.

The exhibition is part of Lyme Regis ArtsFest and runs until 15 October. The museum is open every day (10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sundays) with free admission on Sunday 9th and 16th September.

Everyone is invited to a drop-in workshop with Jennie Pearson on Wednesday September 12 between 11am and 4pm. Take a sketchbook or camera – collage materials will be available – for a day of inspiration, encouragement and discussion. Materials and admission to the museum is free.
