Eye Talk 2

Vernissage
Uppsala, Sweden
February 18 - March 5, 2017


Katrina Flensburg and Jette Clover - "Eye Talk"

Artists Jette Clover and Katriina Flensburg introduced their first Eye Talk exhibition at the Dutch Textile Festival OEQC in Maastricht in 2015. Plans of touring this exhibition with ten large pieces from each artist had to be cancelled when the OEQC organization announced that they had lost Katriina’s entire collection. Jette initiated a new dialogue, but this time with work on a smaller scale. Each artist challenged the other visually by e-mailing images of new pieces for the other one to respond to. The resulting 24 poster size pieces are presented in this exhibition together with a large piece from each artist.

Reception: February 18, 2017 fom 12-4:00 p.m.

Vernissage/Opening 
Sysslomansgatan 1, Walmstedtska Garden

New Quilting

Rheged Centre
Penrith, Cumbria, United Kingdom
March 3 - April 23, 2017


Cas Holmes - "High Water"

This exhibition challenges perceptions of quilt making, revealing a strong and vibrant contemporary craft form that is just as likely to be found hanging on a gallery wall or urban loft apartment as it is in a rural farmhouse. The unique story behind each piece will also be told, either through accompanying sketches and materials, or through the storytelling ability of the quilt itself.
