Armitt Museum & Library, Ambleside, The Lake District National Park.

Images from a two day research visit to the Armitt's archives. I have been invited by Curator Deborah Walsh and Ambleside-based artist Russell Mills to make work for the Museum's Centenary celebrations in 2012. The outcome will be a group exhibition with artworks inspired by their diverse collection.
