‘T’ is for Textiles is a new exhibition showcasing the best in contemporary textile art across the North and Scotland. Featuring work across a diverse range of styles and techniques, the exhibition also touches on the textile heritage of the North.
This will be my first time exhibiting with prism and I’m hugely excited. If you’re in London between 29 May – 9 June do pop along. It’s always been one of my favourite exhibitions in the calendar. Well worth a visit.
Great news to end the week on; one of my tapestries, Rhythm of the Weave, has been selected to be exhibited in The Tapestry Showcase in Edinburgh which runs from 26 November 2018 – mid Jan 2019.
”The object of the showcase is to encourage the work of emerging weavers, and to give them a platform to exhibit and sell their work in a venue of national prestige, within the National Galleries of Scotland’s Princes Street complex, in the heart of Edinburgh.” http://thetapestryprize.org/
I’m very much looking forward to a trip up to beautiful Edinburgh to see my own work and the other exhibits . If you’re in Edinburgh during this period do pop in to see the exhibition at;
The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant
National Galleries of Scotland
Next up is a pop-up exhibition running from 20th May and through the summer as part of the Loom Festival at Sunny Bank Mill. I will be exhibiting work alongside other artists who have an affiliation with the Mill, as a celebration of the Finishing Room which is due to be demolished.
On the 27th May there will be a ‘Meet the Artist’ event from 11am with pimms, prosecco, cake, live jazz band and street art. Hope to see you there!!
