Following Threads – Crawford Art Gallery

I’m very happy to be showing my two large tufted rugs ‘The Moss Theatre’ and ‘The Primeval Sunset’ in this exhibition of textile-based works at Crawford Art Gallery.

Public opening: Friday 8 September from 5pm
Exhibition dates: 9 September 2023 – 28 January 2024
Textile based artworks have been a growing presence in art galleries over the last decade with artists investigating a variety of new and age-old concerns with fibres and threads. The boundaries of traditional techniques such as weaving and embroidery have been pushed by artists who are interested in embracing the potential of thread in contemporary art. 
Spotlighting areas of practice we are curious about and interested in, the exhibition will feature works by Ailbhe Ní Bhriain, Isabel Nolan, Matt Smith, Ciara O’Connor, Cecilia Danell, Mainie Jellett design by Ceodogàn rugs, Dorothy Cross, Michelle Malone, Jennifer Trouton, Anne Kiely and Mary Palmer.
