About TMA

The Town Mill Arts Company is a not-for profit subsidiary of the Town Mill Trust based in the Town Mill Galleries in Lyme Regis. We organise a programme of events, including regular exhibitions and occasional arts-related events, and also provide art tuition and workshops from time to time.

TMA is run by and (mostly) for local artists and craftsmen – painters, draftsmen, printmakers, sculptors, potters, photographers, knitwear and textile designers, glassworkers, furniture makers, stone balancers, blacksmiths, jewellery makers, and probably others we have missed!

Members receive a number of benefits, and in return, are expected to steward their own shows and occasionally swap stewarding with other members as necessary to keep the galleries open.

The Guild was run as a year’s pilot starting in January 2010 in the Courtyard Gallery, and its successor, Town Mill Arts, is now running both the Courtyard Gallery and the prestigious Malthouse Gallery on a permanent basis.

Phil Clayton is the curator/manager for the galleries. He can be contacted  by email on phil@townmillarts.co.uk., or call him on 07809 831760.
