An exhibition of Contemporary Stitched Art Textiles at Floor One Gallery, Rugby Art Gallery & Museum

This exhibition of textiles and mixed media work has been created by the Visualise textile group. Formed in

Northamptonshire several years ago by like-minded artists, the central midlands group create diverse work

with stitch as the common thread.

Wendy Bates, Jane Caven, Viv Denscombe, Janet Gosling, Sandra Jenkins, Thérèse Kane, Karin Kirk, Sue

Latimer, Dora Mack, Mary Martin, Joy Norman, Alyssa Robinson, Jane Stock and Val Taylor meet regularly in

Welford, Northamptonshire, with the aim of promoting creativity with rigorous discipline, underpinned by an

interest in the history of textiles worldwide.

On display are abstract and figurative pieces of art using a wide variety of media: paper, fabric (new, distressed

and recycled) and found objects: these are hand and machine stitched, or felted to create art inspired by both

the natural world and the built environment. In addition the group will have a selection of accessories, gifts,

creative packs and cards to inspire and buy.

Date: Tuesday 12 March – Saturday 23 March 2024

Opening Times: Monday – Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturdays 10am – 4pm, Sundays closed
