COAST CELEBRATION Shipwreck Exhibition

Written by Digswell Arts

On October 15, 2019

Digswell Alumni Connie Flynn will be showing her framed textile work titled ‘In Memory of Grace Darling’ in the Shipwreck Exhibition at RNLI Henry Blogg Museum in Cromer. The exhibition is part of the Coast Arts – Cromer and Sheringham Art and Literary Festival. The work is constructed using recycled fabric which has been rust stained, hand stitched and embroidered. It consists of tiny details including Grace Darling in a rowing boat, a lighthouse behind her and a shipwreck in the distance. The hand stitched background represents the atmosphere, hence the beam from the lighthouse, Grace Darling battling a gale and rough seas, whereas the rust staining gives a sense of a weathered and worn effect.
