Yarning the Land - Textile Exhibition

From: 09:00am to 05:30am, Apr 04, 2018 to Apr 28, 2018  

Yarning The Land - Textile Art Exhibition The landscape of the Marlborough Downs and beyond is the subject of ‘Yarning the Land’, a new exhibition of ‘freestyle crochet’, launching at Marlborough’s White Horse Gallery running throughout April. The exhibition features the work of artists Gemma MacLennan and Barbara Touati-Evans and aims to “tell stories of the land and the differing ways we relate to it in the modern world”. The artists were inspired by a drive through the Downs and further afield around Wiltshire to create a large-scale collaborative piece and individual works based on what they saw. Further research included examining aerial photography of the area and visits to Avebury and Silbury, where they could examine the structure of the soil, observe local wildlife and interact with the natural world.
