Last night saw the opening of a new exhibition of which ‘A Common Thread’ is a part. It comprises some of the work which was displayed at the Knitting and Stitching Shows plus a load of extras that did not make the final cut.
I loved the window display and my pieces blend really well with Frances Marrs beautiful ceramics.
I am particularly indebted to Ian and Nichole Wall for their efforts in providing the lovely recycled wood frames. Link here to their website.
The exhibition is open until March 14th and well worth a visit if you are in the area especially with the added incentive if the cafe with its delicious fare
Last night we went to the artists private view of the ‘Wild and Woolly’ exhibition at Rums Eg. Sadly I have been somewhat preoccupied of late and I forgot my camera. Happily a friend was able to pass on some images she had taken of my work (thanks Kat) but there were lots of other lovely things there and when I get a minute I will return.
It is an alien thing to me to frame my work but it was a requirement of the gallery. I was lucky enough to be put in touch with Alan Tait who makes frames out of recycled materials and this has had the effect of making quite small pieces into large works.
The good news is that I have sold 2 of the 8 pieces already.
A bit of a quiet time now and then its off to Harrogate to the next Knitting and Stitching Show
Anyone passing through Romsey in the next couple of months should swing into Rums Eg and have a look at the exhibition there. It is also a chance to see some of my work as I have been lucky enough to have several of my pieces selected for the exhibition.
Will post some photographs of what has gone up as soon as I have then
