There are ‘bricks and mortar’ exhibitions still out there waiting for national restrictions to be lifted and visitors welcomed. Hopefully not too long before we can all get a much needed ‘art fix’ in a real building.
I have two pieces showing in Fabric of the North at Kirkleatham Museam. The museum is lovely and worth spending a couple of hours there. It’s not far from Saltburn-On-Sea, a lovely victorian spa town, and just down the road is Redcar where you can find the Palace Art Gallery. If restrictions permit it’s worth making a day out of it.
Fabric of the North brings together works by members of the British Tapestry Group, in a range of styles and techniques, large and small, with a single theme: our Northern heritage. The exhibition is open now at Kirkleatham Museum, a magnificent Queen Anne building near Redcar in Teesside (UK).
The exhibition has been extended until 30 April 2021. Travel restrictions may be in place so please do check before visiting.
I am taking part in Chapel Allerton Art Trail from 4 – 6 September. Do come along and walk the trail. It’s free and Covid safe as all the Art is visible from the street. Download a map here http://chapelallerton.org.uk/art-trail/
‘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
