An exciting exhibition of contemporary textile art from this group of acclaimed artists from the South of England.

Pairs of hangings, both from identical starting points but developed in alternative manners, will be displayed together. The theme has been interpreted in many different ways, culminating in an intriguing display. In addition, a collection of pieces, “Chinese Whispers”, show a progression from one artist to the next. The original maker has chosen an image as her inspiration. Subsequently other artists take their inspiration from the previous finished piece without seeing the original image. The result is an interesting display, challenging the progression from start to finish.

Smaller artworks and cards will be on sale.

The participating artists are: Penny Bicknell, Susan Chapman, Kate Dowty, Mary Hewson, Maggie Jarman, Lyn Lambert, Janet McCallum, Grace Meijer, Christine Restall, Hilary Richardson and Beverley Wood.

Free with gardens admission or Friends of Exbury membership.
