I am very pleased to say my Tropical Reef wall hanging that I made in response to the Felting and Fibre Studio Forum Challenge 18 months ago is currently on display in the Bacchus exhibition at Denbies near Dorking, Surrey. The exhibition is only on for another week so you’d better be quick if you want to see it. Entry is free.
This is my exhibit, some of you might recognise it 🙂
These links will take you to the story of its creation…
And these are a selection of the exhibition pieces that caught my eye… Clicking on the image will make it larger and the labels easier to read.
Natasha Mwaegbe was the only other textile artist in the exhibition. Her work reminded me of Maggie Grey’s books.
Anna Scott also has a print exhibition at Watt’s gallery, I am planning to visit that in the next couple of weeks.
This piece by Caroline Bond was made from glass, sand and rocks, it invited the viewer to touch it.
I liked how Grace Ellen had used the gloss medium sparingly, it really made the bank on the other side of the river recede.
This painting of a cow was my favourite and I was surprised it did not place in the judging.
If you are thinking about embarking on Ruth’s current mixed media challenge, I say go for it! You never know where it might lead! 🙂
Your piece deserves its place in the exhibition! What a lot of talent on display – I particularly like Grace Ellen’s river and Caroline Bond’s shoreline.
Thank you ladies, I agree, Caroline Bond’s piece was very evocative and I can’t resist a piece that invites you to touch it 🙂
There is some wonderful work here and your felted piece is fabulous. I particularly love the textural quality you’ve achieved.
Thank you Karen, the exhibition is a bit of a mixed bag, most of the work looks very professional but some of it may have been from children, its probably a bit far for you but for anyone local it is worth the detour.
I’ve missed it apparently and your work is stunning! Obviously I’m biased by the fact it’s felt and still! Great piece!
Thank you Galina, I added some links to the posts I wrote about making it in case anyone is interested.
Thank you Teri, it’s really fascinating read!
I’m glad you enjoyed it Galina, it was a good challenge, using the colour selector tools probably is not something I would have done on my own 🙂
Wow! Your piece looks fabulous – love the colour, design and all the texture.
Thank you Jeanette, I hope all the Bacchus visitors agree with you – there is an award for the visitor’s favourite 🙂
Fantastic piece Teri, it’s deserved a place in the exhibition. I also like pieces you can touch especially when they are filled with wonderful textures.
Congratulations Teri! Well deserved and I hope that everyone votes for you 🙂
Thanks Ruth, would be nice if they did but there were some lovely pieces in the exhibition.
