This month I am excited to be taking part in an exhibition called “Threads’ at Salisbury Art Center.

Salisbury Arts Centre’s annual open exhibition this year takes on the theme of textiles.

“The variety of ideas and forms of making within this exhibition are a sampler of current interests and lines of enquiry found within the world of contemporary textiles.” Michael Brennand-Wood, selection panel member.

Threads showcases a varied range of two and three dimensional work by established and new makers who have submitted their work for selection by a panel of professionals from the contemporary textiles sector.

Over 80 applicants submitted over 200 potential exhibits for selectors to choose from.

Selectors were founder and editor of Selvedge Magazine, Polly Leonard, and textile artist, lecturer and arts consultant Michael Brennand-Wood.

I was particularly pleased that both these two selectors , whom I greatly admire , felt my work was good enough!

The Exhibition runs til November 12th, 2016

If you haven’t been to Salisbury ,I strongly recommend it, a visit to the cathedral is a must! There is an amazing contemporary glass exhibition on at the moment which is fantastic too!
