It’s so nice to see craft having a space in a gallery environment, i’m sure there are lots of craft galleries across the UK however i’ve never been to one so find leeds really exciting. I went down to the gallery to see what’s what and it’s so interesting to see all the different array of work that artists are producing- this is somewhere i could imagine my won work being displayed- and being accepted for what it is!
There’s an upcoming exhibition, it’s not until september but it looks great. It’s a collective of artists displaying their jewellery collection that is entirely made from textiles. I think this bridges the gap between working to sell and working to produce a one of piece. I felt that there were few opportunities to physically display work in exhibitions but a space like this means it can be. It seems here would be a good place to meet people and network.
