The first venue on the gallery tour for Textures of Spurn is South Square, Thornton, near Bradford. I put up my work in the Meeting Room Gallery there earlier this week, ready for the exhibition to open on Friday evening. It is such a different space to the lighthouse but the prints and concertina books look great in a light airy room. Because of the size of the gallery there wasn't space to bring the two large Spurn Cloths and they have stayed up in the lighthouse for a little longer so that they can be seen as part of the Nature Tourism Conference that Yorkshire Wildlife Trust are running this week. I have made three small Spurn Cloths, which are representing the textile element of the project at this venue.
The preview at South Square is from 7-9pm on Friday (do come along if you are local) and then the gallery is open 12-3pm Tuesday - Sunday with the exhibition there until Sunday 28th October.
