Quietly Connected opens on Saturday 21st October at The Wynd Gallery I will be showing new work and work that I wouldn’t normally have at the Wynd Gallery, along with smaller framed tapestries, woven flowers, and new prints and cards.
The exhibition opens Saturday at 10am and runs until Sunday 29th at 3pm
Open Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm and Sundays 11am-3pm.
I will be at the gallery or available to meet you every day except Tuesday 24th when my fellow Wynd artist Anja will be at the gallery to meet you.
Not local or unable to visit, don’t worry I’ll be adding lots of information and images to my website of, and about, my woven pieces and the exhibition over the coming weeks.
My title Quietly Connected relates to many aspects of my work.
The deep connections I have with my garden which is an endless source of inspiration and joy and where many of my ideas for work start.
The connection with my loom and weaving process, the materials I use and the mindful process of weaving.
The relationship between humans and nature and how it isn’t connected quietly.
I have a few new pieces –
Eclipse – a group of moths inspired by the fears or dislikes people have of moths and a small magpie moth which was in my greenhouse last year.
Daisy Chain – a piece I have had in mind for a couple of years but was never too sure why I was making it, until now.
And 80% – I have no other title for this piece, it is woven as a direct response to the state of UK’s butterflies 2022 report that revealed 80% of UK butterflies have declined since the 1970’s.
