Here are some of the more common queries we get from members and others:
- What is the TMA membership model?
Town Mill Arts is a non-profit organisation, not a commercial gallery. It covers costs by charging membership fees, a small commission on sales, and hire fees for the galleries. It offers solo, duo, and small groups of artists the chance to mount an exhibition, which they are expected to steward themselves – so if you live a long way from Lyme and cannot do this, TMA may not be for you. There are also themed open and member exhibitions to which you can submit a small number of works – and in return, you will only need to do one or two stewarding sessions.
- When is TMA open?
The galleries are normally open from 10.30-4.30 every day except over Christmas and when a new exhibition is being hung. In the summer and at weekends and bank holidays, there may be extended opening times. See the Exhibitions page for details.
- How do I get an exhibition or sell cards and prints?
In the first instance, please talk to Phil (firstname.lastname@example.org or 07809 831760) who will advise you of the availability of opportunities.
- How do I get a page on the web site?
Members should send to email@example.com at least one image in landscape format suitable for the top banner (1040 pixels wide as the minimum), a note of their chosen areas of practice, and words* plus any other images they wish to feature. (*Please don’t send a scanned PDF without any selectable text as we don’t have the resources to retype everything.)
