Venue: Pallant House Gallery

Date: 12th May 2016

Time: 6pm

Speaker: Caron Penney


This talk is part of a programme of events running along side the exhibition John Piper: The Fabric of Modernism.

Penney will explain how in the post war years artists such as Edward Bawden, Graham Sutherland, Henry Moore and John Piper embraced tapestry and how today in a time of austerity artists are turning to textiles again. Penney will bring the talk up to present day by looking at artists like Gillian Ayres, Tracey Emin, Martin Creed, and Alison Watt, showing tapestries produced by the West Dean Studio, Dovecot Studio, the Pinton Frères, Felletin, France and to a small extent her own work from Weftfaced. 


All talks £10, Friends £8.50, Students £9 (unless otherwise stated)
A wine reception courtesy of the Friends of Pallant House Gallery will follow each talk.
