Planned exhibitions for the forthcoming months are listed below. If you would like to discuss exhibiting at the Gallery on the Green, please contact the Curator.
30th July – 24th September 2016. Everyday objects in unusual perspectives, felt and textile designs and crafts by Escape Tunnel Crafts.
On escaping (or retiring) from teaching, sisters Chris Marflitt and Gill O’Donnell decided the time had come to develop their creative talents. Escape Tunnel Crafts is the result of that decision. In all their pieces they aim to look at life from a slightly “quirky” angle in order to produce items which are definitely unique. Consequently old traditions are revived to encourage the use of blossoming broomsticks as good luck symbols or to enable couples to “jump the broom”, while discarded scarves, clothes, plastic, ribbons and lace are up cycled into creative fashion accessories. Similarly everyday objects are photographed at unexpected angles to suggest letters of the alphabet and words and images merge together to suggest moods and provoke thought. Proud of their Geordie heritage, both sisters also have strong Yorkshire connections and their work reflects both their roots and love of travel while their poppies symbolise the influence of HM services in their lives.
An installation by photographer Mike Kilyon and poet Sue Vickerman, based on a poem by Sue and some striking images from Mike, plus a chance for visitors to engage with a work that offers something very different for the gallery.
