Kirkby Gallery: Textiles in Action

1 August – 8 October 2011 at Kirkby Gallery ‘Textiles in Action’

Private View: Thursday 4 August 2011, 4 – 6pm (RSVP*)
This exhibition presents the work of a newly established contemporary textiles network for the NorthWest; ‘Re:View Textiles’. The network consists of over 50 members who meet regularly at The Bluecoat, Liverpool. This exhibition profiles and explores the work of ten members, responding to the theme of Textiles in Action.

Each of the artists on show explore, utilise and respond to textiles in a different way, often blurring the barriers between textiles as a craft form into other practice based areas such as installation art, sculpture and film.

The ten exhibiting artists are Susan Beck, Ally Burr, Susan Comer, Emma Gilmour, Rachael Howard, Amanda Jones, Tania Oakshott, Deborah Payne, Eleanor Suggett and Christine Toh.

There will be a range of art workshops inspired by this exhibition, please contact the Arts & Heritage Service formore information.
