Size 21 x 27 cm. The piece is hand embroidered and hand stitched with vintage Sylko thread on cotton cloth Eco printed with leaves and petals from my lockdown garden in Summer 2020.
This is the third time I have exhibited art with the Spring Up Gallery.
“DIRECTIONS is a small exhibition of detailed work on the subject of maps, plans and directions.” – Sarah Osbourne, curator.
It’s entirely hand stitched and measures 74cm x 74cm. From initial design to final stitch it took 19 days to complete. Created on a vintage linen bed sheet and couched in my favourite red embroidery thread.
My artwork has appeared in previous exhibitions curated by Sarah, the founder of the Spring Up Gallery.
“For as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed visiting local galleries … and am full of admiration for the creativity, skill and individuality of artists and makers. Through volunteering at a local art gallery it has been my fortune to see a great variety of work and to meet those who created it. …. In recent years, social media and the Internet have made it possible for artists and makers to reach audiences in different ways …
… this has inspired me to create Spring Up Gallery, to bring the essence of a small friendly local exhibition space into the virtual world. The website provides a space for artists and makers to exhibit and brings the visitor a curated selection of work to browse at their leisure. I will hold regular virtual exhibitions of work by artists and makers whose work I have got to know and appreciate, most of whom are from the Chiltern area and surrounds. I hope you enjoy the virtual exhibitions…” – Sarah Osborne, Springup Gallery.
