Some of you may know (some of you may not), that I am a part of the International Exhibiting Group, PRISM Textiles… that is exciting in itself but is not why I am sounding the KLAXON. PRISM put on an annual exhibition with a specified theme, each year you have to submit your work for selection. Last year 2 out of my 3 submitted pieces were accepted and I was thrilled to be a part of the FRAGILITY exhibitions at both Hoxton Arches and the RBSA with two pieces of Fine Art Embroidery work.
Well, this year, PRISM are moving to a new, beautiful and exciting space for their annual exhibition, The Art Pavilion in London (see full details below). This exciting move to this light and airy space, coupled with my Christmas re-think (read all about that here) meant that I made the bold (in my head) decision to only submit Rug Tufted and Latch Hooked pieces… A scary decision at the time, to give context, I had been accepted to PRISM based on my embroidery work only, but Rug Tufting and Latch Hooking is what I was really enjoying and what I wanted to pursue…
Long story short (it’s never a short story, let’s be honest), I submitted two large scale pieces and a series for consideration by the selection panel… and all 3 were accepted (that is the exciting news bit)! I am absolutely delighted to be exhibiting with PRISM again this year, not only to be amongst such fabulous Contemporary Textiles artists, but to further explore and showcase my work with Rug Tufting and Latch Hook Rug Making.
So I just wanted to share all of that with you. This blog has become a bit of an open book about the way that my artwork is changing, so I wanted to share the journey (so far)... especially the good bits.
If you want to come and see the works for yourselves, take a look at the details below, it would be great to see you there.
