LONDON: British Folk Art exhibition

Nearly 200 paintings, sculptures, textiles and objects explore the boundaries between art and artifact, as well as challenge notions of ‘high art’ in the latest exhibition at Tate Britain. The exhibition provides diverse examples of British Folk Art, from leather toby jugs to bold ships’ figureheads, as well as maritime embroidery and an intricate pin cushion made by wounded soldiers during the Crimean war. The display also showcases works from a number of prominent individuals including George Smart the tailor of Frant, embroiderer Mary Linwood and painter Alfred Wallis. –Emily Cater
