2018 promises to be a busy and, hopefully, exciting year as two groups to which I belong will be showing work at three venues. And it is an opportunity for me to explore in some detail my subject for this year's work based on Dryden's translation of Virgil's Georgics.
The first in time is 'Contrasts' with All Threaded Together at the Yarrow Gallery, Oundle, Northamptonshire, 3 - 16 March. The group consists of former students of Brenda Boardman who meet once a month to exchange ideas and encourage each other. Most importantly, we are an exhibiting group and details can be found on our website at www.allthreadedtogether.com
The second exhibition, 'Into the Fray', is with New Horizons Textile Group at Cowslip Workshops, Launceston, Cornwall 27 March - 8 April. The exhibiting group is a long running one formed in 1993 and which I joined in 2016. Our website is at www.newhorizonstextilegroup.com
The third show is 'Connections', also with New Horizons, at the Festival of Quilts, Birmingham, 9 - 12 August. This is the largest quilting and patchwork show in Europe with about 30,000 visitors over four days. So Virgil should get a lot of exposure!
SAQA "Made in Europe"
I was delighted that my piece, Southbank 13, was selected to be shown in venues in the USA in 2017. And it has now been chosen to travel to three venues in Europe this year.
You can read about the process of making the piece under the Works heading above.
