2 pieces of my work were selected for Pinpoint 13 which is an exhibition of contemporary miniature works that express a sustained conversation with materials. The selecting panel included leading figures within the textile art world, Polly Binns and Linda Brassington, who worked in collaboration with the Directors of One Church Street Gallery. The panel reviewed submissions from hundreds of applicants from around the world, seeking a breadth of approach in the construction or application of cloth and thread. Submissions came from an international arena including Israel, Finland, United States as well as the United Kingdom.
The exhibition runs until 9 November 2013 at One Church St Gallery, Great Missenden, Bucks, UK and also features work by my fellow members of the 62 Group of Textile Artists Ann Goddard and Jan Miller.
If you go down to the Pink Wood near Bruton in Somerset during Somersets Arts Weeks you will discover the 62 Group of Textile Artists taking up the challenge of working in this beautiful woodland environment.
The 62 Group is an international group of textile artists, with members in Japan, Germany, Sweden, Australia as well as this country. The group usually exhibit in galleries but this year they have been invited to create innovative installations out of doors.
This challenge was set by a former member, Hannah Streefkerk, a Land Artist working in Sweden and Norway. Her work often involves ‘mending’ the environment by stitching across voids or cracks in trees. Image by Hannah Steefkerk of work called ‘Restoration’.
