The Museum of Mystery and Imagination

An Exhibition in the Allsop Gallery of the Bridport Arts Centre 15th July to 20th August 2021

An exhibition of artworks which is purposely mysterious created from the imagination of artists and aimed to inspire the imagination of the audience.

According to the dictionary definition a museum houses a collection of natural, artistic, historical or scientific objects. To muse is to ponder or consider meditatively. A mystery is something which is obscure or secret, and imagination is the faculty of making images from the mind of things neither present nor real.

Therefore an artistic Museum of Mystery and Imagination would be a collection of artworks which appear to be obscure or mysterious and which the artist has used their imagination to create images or objects which in reality do not exist. Allowing visitors to such a museum to meditatively ponder and consider … using their own imaginations to wander and debate what is real and what is not.

Artists taking part in this exhibition are: David Brooke, Tim Carroll, Elaine Dixon, John Hurford, Caroline Ireland, David Lawrence, Debbie Lee, Lisa Lindqvist, Amanda Popham and Suzanne Woodward.
