Hanging Together

Sorry, no photo's, but please follow the links instead!

I paid a quick visit here today for a textile exhibition by the group Hanging Together. If you are in or around the area the exhibition runs until Wednesday 10th February and I can thoroughly recommend a visit. All the work on show is of a very high quality and some of the textures achieved are quite amazing. The ironing boards (Pressing Matters) are highly amusing! I took no photographs, but the group has a blog here where you can see samples of the work of each member and some galleries of previous exhibitions. Do keep an eye on it, as I am sure the blog will be updated with photo's of Pressing Matters once the exhibition has finished.

The Gallery at Chequer Mead in East Grinstead is ideal for hanging textiles and seems to be getting very popular. There are several interesting exhibitions coming up. The gallery is housed in a delightful old school building, fairly expensive but delicious refreshments are available and there is a reasonably priced car park directly opposite. The town of East Grinstead is on the A22, just north of the lovely area of Ashdown Forest and the charming village of Forest Row.
