An International Exhibition announcement!

I am very honoured and delighted that my work ‘Ladies Companions’ has been selected for ‘The 6th Riga International Textile and Fibre Art Triennial: Identity’

The Exhibition is from 6th June to 9th September, 2018. At Arsenāls Exhibition Hall, Riga. Latvia. The Exhibition and programme of events has been organized by the Latvian National Museum of Art/ Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, Riga.

218 applications were submitted for selection and judged by the jury, consisting of the following experts:

  • Signe Kivi, textile artist, Director of the Tartu Art Mueum (Estonia),
  • Laima Oržekauskiene, textile artist, Professor, Kaunas Art Institute (Lithuania),
  • Pasi Välimaa, textile artist and designer, Professor, University of Gothenburg, HDK Steneby (Finland/ Sweden),
  • Velta Raudzepa, MA, Head of collections, the Latvian National Museum of Art/ Museum of Decorative Arts and Design,

The jury passed out a decision that 85 artworks from 28 countries will enter the Triennial. An International Conference exploring related themes in The Exhibition is to be held on 7th and 8th June. As part of this conference I will be presenting my lecture titled ‘Hair; Locks, curls, thimbles and dresses’ on Friday 8th June.

This year, 2018, Latvia is celebrating the centenary anniversary of the Republic of Latvia and the Triennial will be part of the festivity cultural programme….. There is a fantastic line up of Artwork in the Triennial as well as the extended Exhibitions programme in and around Riga.

You will find me on the Second Floor studio number 2S8. I am currently sharing a small studio, and still hoping to get a Phoenix studio of my own in the near future!

I will be selling my limited edition collage works titled ‘All the clothes I have ever thought about…’ at £2 each throughout the open studio weekend. You may also find me in some other clothes……

You can also view my work ‘In 1962 the birth control pill was available…’ in the South Gallery at Phoenix Brighton until the 27th May. Open Wed – Sun 11 am – 5 pm. She is part of the current ‘Phoenix Artists’ Exhibitions part of Open Studios. You can’t miss her either as she is cerise and can be seen from the pavement!
