Colour and Light at Dovecot Studios

After Benches 525

Colour and Light which opens at Dovecot Gallery on 5th November, is a new exhibition exploring the relationship between colour and light in Dovecot projects. From projection to pigment, there are a myriad of different ways that the weaver can use the subtle effects of light on colour to bring textile to life. The importance of light in successful colour blending is a vital element in the production of all the textile art produced at Dovecot Tapestry Studio.

This display of textile works, film and objects provides an opportunity to take a closer look at the materials and processes involved in creating tapestries and rugs at Dovecot Tapestry Studio with an emphasis on colour and light. A coinciding programme of accessible events including talks, handling sessions and workshops are available to those who wish to deepen their understanding. Collaborations with artists including Tom Philips, Garry Fabian Miller, David Poston, Chrissie Clyne and Eduardo Paolozzi are represented in this exhibition.

The exhibition is open: Mon-Sat 10.30am-5.30pm until 25th February 2017
