Spotlight On: Philippa MacArthur

29th April 2021 / Museum, Museum blog

Our Spotlight On blogs and vlogs introduce thirteen of the artists featured in exhibition ‘Spotlight On: Modern and Contemporary Art from the Collection of Chippenham Museum’.  The second in a series, the exhibition presents 40 works acquired in the last five years to ensure our collection better represents North Wiltshire’s creativity, with the majority of works donated by the artists.

What is your name, where are you based, what medium/style do you work in?

I’m Philippa MacArthur and I live and work in Corsham. I work here in my studio, which is very small but looks out onto the garden, and my main medium is ceramic.
