After a very busy few weeks (well perhaps a bit more than a few) getting three new pieces of work finished for the new exhibition at The Shire Hall Gallery and as usual still framing them the day before, they were all finally wrapped and ready for the exhibition, so I finally made the journey to Stafford this morning. If you have never visited the Gallery it is in a lovely old building that used to be the old court rooms in Stafford. The Exhibition Drawing with Thread is a joint curated exhibition of six textile artists and it opens on Saturday 5th of March. It promises to be a great exhibition. Kim Gould the curator showed me around and I had a sneaky preview of some of the other artists work as it was being prepared for hanging. Debbie Smythe had started work on her installation and will be filmed while working to show visitors how she creates her work.
The exhibition is on until the 1st of May and will be well worth a visit. The web site is .http://www.staffordshire.gov.uk/leisure/museumandgalleries/shirehallgalleries/Exhibitions/
