More Exhibitions

It's possible to see my work in two exhibitions which are up and running now.

The first is at Maiden Bridge, which is tucked away in North Lancashire, not too far off the A65 near Ingleton. It's a glorious setting, with over twenty artists working in various media, exhibiting together.

Further details about opening times, and directions are available from the gallery's website here.

The other exhibition is in the Atrium Gallery, which is part of the Bexley Wing of St James's Hospital in Leeds. This is a group exhibition with Diverse Threads.

The Atrium Gallery is in the main reception area of the Bexley Wing of the hospital, and is generally a much busier place than this photo suggests!

Platform Gallery Exhibition is now on

My exhibition within the Platform Gallery in Clitheroe, is now hung and open to visitors! I was given the opportunity to exhibit when I won the Selectors' Prize for Innovation at last year's Craft Open, which I wrote about here.

The exhibition features new hand-cut paper assemblages, meticulously machine stitched in place, together with vessels created from wire and stitch.

Directions to the gallery, and opening times, can be found from this link. The gallery is closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Do check with the gallery to confirm opening times if you are making a big expedition to get there!

My exhibition is within this year's Craft Open which features contemporary work by artists based in Yorkshire and Lancashire. If you want to see my work, don't forget my exhibition closes on Saturday 9th April, which is a week earlier than the rest of the Craft Open.

Getting ready. . .

The Platform Gallery in Clitheroe is now showcasing the works of selected makers from Lancashire and Yorkshire in their 2016 Craft Open.....

..... and I'm making final preparations for my exhibition there starting on the 15th March. These are hints of some of the pieces that will be there.

The exhibition in Clitheroe runs until 9th April. Opening times can be found by following this link. Do check before you visit - it is closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays, which will mean it will not be open on Good Friday or Easter Monday.

There is also still time to visit the East Riding Open Art Exhibition in Beverley, where my work is

on display until February 13th. Further details of opening times are here

A Hint of Things to Come . . .

In September, I will be exhibiting some new work as part of a Group Exhibition with Diverse Threads. Exhibition details can be found under the Exhibitions tab, but here's a sneak preview of work in progress.

Exhibition Time . . . again

It's nearly time for Prism's annual exhibition in London. This year, there's a new venue - Hoxton Arches Gallery which is just by Hoxton Station. The exhibition runs for nearly two weeks this time, and has late openings on Thursdays and Fridays.

The gallery is just next to the station.

This is just a taster of the work I will be showing - my take on Lines of Communication.

My work is all packed and ready to deliver - it promises to be a fantastic exhibition in this new venue, and with the Geffrye Museum nearby there's the makings of a really good day out.

A Big Surprise

I've had some work accepted into the Platform Gallery Craft Open Exhibition in Clitheroe.The exhibition opened yesterday and runs until July 4th. Further details are on the Exhibitions page

My pieces are cut and stitched paper developing from work I exhibited at the Knitting and Stitching Shows last year.

The big surprise is that I've been awarded the Selectors' Prize for Innovation - totally unexpected, and for once I was practically speechless. There's a nice picture here on the Gallery's twitter page, and if that isn't enough there's a slightly fuzzy one here.

The prize comes with the opportunity to have a showcase in an exhibition at the gallery later this year, so (as they say) watch this space.
