Textiles to be showcased at exhibition

Posted onPosted on 24th Nov

Textile artist Anne Kelly is bringing a new exhibition to the Harley Foundation Welbeck.

Her densely-embroidered artworks will feature in Well Travelled, from 24th January to 12th March.

The collection describes her memories of travel and journeys of the imagination.

The exhibition includes a life-size fabric canoe, complete with decorated paddle; a textile model of a Tudor house, and an array of beautiful, embroidered patchwork blankets.

Lisa Gee, director of The Harley Foundation, said: “Anne’s work reminds us that wherever we are, and whatever we are doing, we can always journey through our imagination.

“We are asking visitors to tell us about their own journeys — real or imagined — by taking part in our new gallery activity. We are asking visitors to follow Anne’s lead and make their own fabric pictures for bunting, which will fill the gallery space.”

Anne will also be at the Hope and Elvis textile workshop in the Harley Studios for classes in the spring.
