At first it seemed ages away and then much too close but 1st July has come and gone and my exhibition at Allendale Forge Studios is finally on the wall of the gallery. Many thanks to Cherry, Caroline and Amanda who helped me get it all together and made the day fun.
I only got these two pictures before my camera battery went flat but I hope they will entice you to come along and have a look. I will be in the Gallery on Saturday 7th July and each Sunday until the end of July between 11.00 and 3.00 p.m. if you would like to pop in for a chat.
I have a new workshop programme out too with new workshops some of which are linked to the work on display. You can download a leaflet at http://patashton-smith.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/AFS-Workshops-July-to-October-2012.pdf
A Sense of Place is the title of my July Exhibition. It will be at Allendale Forge Studios, Allendale from 1st to 31st July and will feature embroideries, art quilts and mixed media textiles inspired by my connection to the natural landscape. I hope the images will connect with you too as that is the joy of creating – the response your work hopefully engenders in the observer.
The Gallery will be open from 9 – 5 p.m. each day. Saturday 7th July is the first Saturday event to which you are cordially invited but if you can’t make that day I will be in the gallery each Sunday (and on other days when I can) and will hope to see you.
This is a detail of one of the embroideries now waiting to be framed.
