Just one more weekend to get to see our exhibition at The Birley Centre, Carlisle Road, Eastbourne.
We have had a terrific time at The Birley, chatting with people while we are stewarding, and even getting them to have a go at mark making and printing with our ‘curious objects’ (an on going project for our next exhibition at Knitting & Stitching shows in the Autumn!)
The exhibition has been really well received and we have had 100-120 each weekend visiting, and some people have come back for a second viewing, often bringing friends with them!
For those of you who can’t get to see the show, here are a few pics along with some of the very lovely comments left in our Visitor book:
“Beautiful work varied and good to see textiles making it on to the walls of galleries.”
Sally Skaife – Noughts & Crosses
“I felt very inspired by the exhibition. I can’t wait to explore new textures and patterns”
Sarah Welsby – To Thine Own Self Be True
Sarah Welsby – Ramblings
“A gem of an exhibition raising interesting questions about the boundaries between drawing, painting, sculpture, writing & textiles.”
Christine Chester – Rusty Memory
“Great exhibition – the work depicting dementia is particularly interesting showing in art, the way memory fades and how the reaction to the person with dementia fades and changes as well.”
Christina Ellcock – Small Landscapes
“Wonderful collection of creative collages.”
Work by Sarah Welsby & Sally Skaife
“Really interesting work. I like how the pieces from the different artists hang together – very well curated!”
Many thanks to all who have visited – don’t forget our Artists Walk & Talk on Saturday 30th January at 11.30.
