Men of Cloth, an exhibition of stitched textiles by Michael Brennand-Wood, Gavin Fry, Matthew Harris, James Hunting, Colin Jenkins and Kazuhito Takadoi, will be at the Waterside Arts Centre, 3 July to 4 September 2010. Work by a few artists who are also represented in the Whitworth’s collection will be on display.
All of us who work with textiles here will be heading over to Sale to have a look at the contemporary stitched work.
The exhibition is curated by Jenny Waterson, a textile designer and curator who has been helping out in the textile department at the Whitworth for the last few months. We won’t see her for a few weeks while she works hard to get her exhibition ready. Good luck Jenny!
