Art Weeks at Appleton

I was not able to make the Fabrications Exhibition at Bampton, so I was delighted to get a second chance at least to see Amanda’s colourful combinations. This time Amanda was joined by Alex who displayed a selection of her delicate textiles. Hopefully, Alex and Karen will be giving their postponed talk "Our life with Cherrilyn" in the near future, so I will leave it to Alex to describe her work but she did allow me to take some pictures to share with you.

No excuse was needed to attend this exhibition of several talented artists work, although the sunshine no doubt helped to encourage visitors out of their homes, and the delicious cakes on sale where a bonus. Textiles were well represented with a display of Japanese embroidery as well as Amanda and Alex beautiful work. Pottery, photography, painting, jewellery making and mosaics were also exhibited.
