Weaving Within British Tapestry Group

by on Jun.10, 2009, under Blog Posts

I have just completed weaving and mounting my entry for the exhibition “Weaving Within” small format tapestries woven by the members of the British Tapestry Group.  The title was chosen to reflect the size of the tapestries (max. 11″ by 17″) as well as the fact that it is only open to members of the BTG.  The exhibition will be shown at Stirling Castle and the Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum from 12th September to 8th November 2009.  Four speakers:  Joan Baxter, Sara Brennan, Dina Ward, and Rudi Richardson are part of the Conference Day agenda scheduled for Sept 9.  On Sunday, Sept 10, there are workshops scheduled.   After the exhibition the BTG is hoping to have the tapestries as part of an on-line exhibition.  I have never exhibited overseas and I find the process exhilarating as well as nerve-wracking.  CD of images, entry forms to be mailed.  Then the actual shipping of the tapestry in mid-summer.  Due to the small format size this should not be too difficult to do.  The piece I am sending is part of a new series I have started:  Nature Designed.  I will be posting photos and artist statement in the Gallery section very soon.
