There were many exciting galleries with stunning displays of work. Below are some views of the Through Our Hands exhibition, Maker, Making, Made, curated by Laura Kemshall and Annabel Rainbow.
We really enjoyed our friend Christine Chester's poignant gallery entitled Fragility of Memory. Her serene and mostly monochrome work dealt with the her father's decline due to Alzheimer's Disease,. He had been a fisherman and never forgot that identity. The photo shows Christine and her mum Dee (an amazing lady and textile artist in her own right) who was helping out.
And finally for today, Luke Haynes' Clothes Portraits gallery. These large quilts featured fabric portraits of the sitters who were asked to bring objects that represented themselves. The applied figures are created from the clothes the sitter was wearing and the log cabin background from used clothing sourced from the area where each sitter lived. I love the detail and we both always love log cabin
That's all for today, but there will be more soon. Do leave us a comment and let us know what your favourites were.
