Time & Tide – forthcoming exhibition
by Joanna Atherton
I am excited to announce that I will be exhibiting my flotsam tapestries in a new solo show at Artistsmeet in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. Time & Tide opens on 19 January and runs until 26 February 2016.
The sea curates orphaned objects and presents them to the shore; a temporary narrative replenished with each changing tide. I am fascinated by these unexpected and ignored fragments, imagining who they were important to in another time and place. By weaving strands of found objects together, I am able to repurpose the lost and rejected, pondering threads of stories and yarns long forgotten.
As well as your chance to see a unique collection of tapestries handwoven from materials found on the British coastline, you are invited to create your own small tapestry using coastline curiosities. Join me on Wednesday 27 January 2016 from 11am to view the exhibition and learn more about weaving with found objects. Looms, materials, coffee and cake provided – just bring your imagination!
Entry is free, but booking is required. To secure your place, please call 01923 776611 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
