‘Threads’ exhibition at Gala House in Galashiels. This show by @societyscottishartists is on from the 20th July until 30th September. Thankyou to my friend @zygadlodenise (who is the invited artist for this exhibition and you can see her work in my first photo), for taking my work to Gala house. The brief- The Great Tapestry of Scotland beautifully captures the threads of history, culture, and identity that run through the country. Our artists may draw inspiration from this commemorative work, exploring similar themes of heritage, connection, and the interwoven narratives that define our shared human experience. I have included my two tapestries and close ups-‘The Ceaseless Surge’ Handwoven tapestry 44cmx44cm framed‘Listen to the Surge of the Sea’ Handwoven Tapestry 44cmx44cm both for sale.

Thank you British Tapestry Group. If you’re into tapestries have a look at their website ❤️‘Jesse’ is in @societyscottishartists exhibition called ‘treasures’. A bit different for me this tapestry and a very fine piece however I’m looking forward to doing some more of the same. The show is in @gairlochmuseum and starts on the 6th July. They were so kind and phoned me to tell me my work had arrived - very chuffed with that personal touch thank you. This venue is unusual in that it was a former nuclear bomb proof bunker amongst other things. I am looking forward to seeing the show and the building #gairlochmuseum #societyofscottishartists #tapestry #tapestryweaving #shepaintswithyarn #britishtapestrygroup #uplandcic ... See MoreSee Less

‘Stream Corridor’, is in @dagfas20 summer exhibition @gracefield_art_centre now until 10th August. My photos show the process of weaving on my scaffold loom. I wove her on her side but have framed her vertical. It really is up to the person how you want to view my work. I have included my painting too that I wove from without a template. Also the photo of my spread in @dumfriesandgallowaylife magazine #britishtapestrygroup #tapestry #handwoventapestry #tapestryweaving #sheiaintswithyarn #dumfriesandgalloway #dumfriesandgallowaywhatsgoingon ...

I am part of this show in Gala House so thrilled 💙💙THREADS | SSA AT OLD GALA HOUSE We are delighted to be collaborating with Live Borders for the first time to present an exhibition of work by SSA Members with the compelling theme of ‘Threads’. The exhibition explores the diverse and intricate connections that weave through the fabric of human experience, fostering a dialogue between artists and viewers alike. The theme “Threads” serves as a metaphor for the interconnectedness of ideas, cultures, and emotions that form the rich tapestry of our lives. A significant source of inspiration for this exhibition is ‘The Great Tapestry of Scotland’, which is housed in its own building in Galashiels...a monumental work of art that vividly depicts the country’s history and heritage. The Great Tapestry of Scotland beautifully captures the threads of history, culture, and identity that run through the country. Our artists may draw inspiration from this commemorative work, exploring similar themes of heritage, connection, and the interwoven narratives that define our shared human experience.The exhibition includes work by invited artist, Denise Zygadlo alongside selected works by SSA Members who responded to themes explored in the Great Tapestry of Scotland.
