This year we have three guest artists!
Viv Calver is a returning guest exhibitor who combines her love of sewing with a passion for Harris tweed, making beautiful bags.
"I source directly from the weavers on the Isles of Harris and Lewis and I love the narrative of how this cottage industry, dating back over 150 years, has developed into a thriving business for the islands, while remaining true to its origins."
Viv's work will be on sale and on display in our annual exhibition, at the Old School Room (aka Barwick Hall) at Witherslack from Saturday 24 September to Sunday 16 October.
Our second guest exhibitor is Karen of @Karen Lainson Ceramics whose ceramics are inspired by the animals around her, their moods and expressions.
Karen's work is going to sit so well in the Barwick Hall with our other potters and so much work that's inspired by our landscape and wildlife.
Looking forward to it.
Gina is a teller of stories - mostly with paint. "The stories change as I go through life. At the moment I am preoccupied with tales of trees. For the last 45 years of my life there has hardly been a day when I haven’t put pen to paper or brush to canvas. Recently oil paint has been my addiction. Another 300 years on the planet would still not be enough time for me to understand the mixing of colour and the handling of paint."
We're really looking forward to including Gina's work in the exhibition this year!
