Caroline Bell and I are very pleased with how the exhibition, From the Earth at Mardleybury Gallery [Datchworth SG3 6SG] has been going. The Exhibition is on for a few more days.. it closes at 4 on Saturday. The Gallery has been a very good setting for the Exhibition.
We have three guest artists, above is the work of Fabienne Dorsman Rey, who also led one of our workshops at Art Van Go. We also have work by the India Flint who I feel is the initiator of the current re surge of interest in natural dyeing and eco leaf printing, as well as Alice Fox’s great work.
It has been great to be able to include work by some experienced UK artists above is Reef Marks by Shelley Rhodes.
There is also work by local artists and artists who are just setting out, this wonderful piece is by Rebecca Robins.
It was good to have Margaret Talbot’s Petrified Trees, East textiles were well represented.
Jenny Dean author of many books and very experienced natural dyer gave us a very encouraging introduction at the Private View last Friday.
