We had an wonderful opening night for our degree show, with a huge number of friends and family turning up to support us. Everyone enjoyed the diverse range of exhibits and the compliments were overwhelming and I had a lot of interest in my ‘B95 Red Knot Migration’ exhibit. It’s not an easy installation to photograph but hope to get some more done and will put on the website soon.
I went to see the ‘Altered Images’ textile exhibition by ‘Diversity’ yesterday at the Forest Arts Centre in New Milton. The work was quite varied in style from beading to machine embroidery and 3D work. I was pleased to see a small piece of free machine embroidery by Elizabeth Randall, only sorry I didn’t get a photo of it. There was an interesting series of work by Helen Talbot inspired by her visits to Venice. I particularly liked Susan Vosper’s black thread landscape and her ‘Sunset’ and ‘Sea View’ pieces worked using sari silk ribbon and machine stitch.
