The Art of Illustration will explore the work of Simon Pemberton an illustraor and artist. Is there a difference between illustration and fine art? Why do we seek the differences? Through exhibiting both works created for specific briefs and works more personal to the artist we will be able to examine the processes and inspiration,beauty and detail of each and how they overlap.
