Despite the awful weather, those that managed to get to the NEC for Fashion Embroidery and Stitch and see our Out There exhibition were delighted with what they saw. here are just a few of the comments left in our book:
“Best in Show” Hilary, Shropshire
“What wonderful fun, it made me smile” Jenny G.
“An excellent display” Mrs Hammond
“Inspirational display – like the idea of displaying pieces in a garden” Anne S
“Beautiful and inspirational art that celebrates art in the open air” M Deering
“Brilliant – love the colour and scale and wit” Sue T
“Love it all. The glove plants – fantastic idea. The clock, amazing. Great use of upcycling – the Chinese lanterns, I have often wondered what to do with fruit nets. Fab” Svena B
“This is absolutely fabulous and inspirational work.” Sandra S
Janet Wain’s The Gardners. Sadly, these would not fit into our stand at the NEC, but the vibrant colour and scale epitomise the exhibition.
If you would like a CD of the exhibition as it was at Easton Walled Gardens then please email Lizwelch@rarebird.ltd.uk. The CDs cost £5 and contain more than 90 images of the work in situ as well as information on the artists an their thoughts behind their work.
We are following on from Out There with InsideOut, a new body of work which is a development from our work for Out There. We open at the Sam Scorer Gallery in Lincoln on 14th May for two weeks. Mark it in your diary!
