annie turner

Margaret Cooter mentions Annie Turner on her blog today. I have a policy of buying a piece of art or craft whenever I sell well at an exhibition. At Chelsea Crafts Fair in 2006 (I think) I was in the same aisle as Annie. I had one particularly expensive tapestry and promised myself that if it went I would have one of Annie's ladders. It's one of the things I'd rescue if the house was on fire. Spare, elegant, poetic.

There is an online exhibition of Archie Brennan's work here. It'll be there for a few months.

So here's the news!

I'm delighted to announce that S.T.A.R.* (Scottish Tapestry Artists Regrouped) will be exhibiting at Galerie la Tour Montsal├Ęs this summer - 16 July - 18 August. The exhibition will be open every day from 3 - 7pm.

The list of exhibitors is ... Sara Brennan, Amanda Gizzi, Linda Green, Fiona Hutchison, William Jeffries, Jo McDonald, Susan Mowatt, Paul R. Penrice, Elizabeth Radcliffe, Anna Ray, Joanne Soroka, Lesley Stothers and me.

Linda Green

There will be a great range of tapestry on show from the narrative works of Amanda Gizzi to Fiona Hutchison's textural, three dimensional evocations of the sea, Linda Green's complex textile drawings and lots more.
52 tapestries in fact - 4 from each artist.

Jo McDonald

Please tell your friends, mention this exhibition on your blogs, facebook, twitter (speaking as a facebook/twitterphobe!) anywhere! It's going to a great show and is a very exciting development for us.
