With Ledbury Poetry Festival now underway my attention has reverted to Herefordshire Art Week (September 7 – 15th 2019) and my exhibition with fellow Quartet members Amanda Wright, Jill Exell and Cheryl Kirby. First on today’s agenda was to turn some little mixed media landscapes into art cards.
Landscapes of the Imagination
Weavers Gallery, Church Lane, Ledbury, HR8 1DW
Open 10.00 to 5.00, informal demonstrations daily
Sadly no disabled access (first floor gallery)
As in previous years I was invited to create a piece of textile work to show in conjunction with Weavers Gallery’s textile exhibition, held during Ledbury Poetry Festival. The theme this year is T.S.Eliot’s poems collectively know as the Four Quartets.
Inspired by the common premise that each one of Eliot’s Four Quartets poems corresponds to one of the four classical elements:
- Burnt Norton – Air
- East Coker – Earth
- The Dry Savages – Water
- Little Gidding – Fire
‘Elements’ is my interpretation of the poems. Each piece consists of hand dyed machine appliquéd silks and needle felted wools.
