Digswell Alumni Connie Flynn’s Finders Keepers – Tales in Textiles! exhibition is touring

Written by Digswell Arts

On July 17, 2017

Once again Finders Keepers Tales in Textiles! is touring, this time it is actually in a lighthouse. On Sat 19th & Sun 20th August 11am – 3pm, it will be on show in Harwich High Lighthouse, 81 West Street, Harwich, Essex, CO12 CDQ. So far It has been shown in Shetland Museum (April 2016) and Rayleigh Windmill (Sept/Oct 2016) and Three Hares Gallery in Buckinghamshire (Feb 2017).

In June 2015 Connie was the Artist in Residence at Sumburgh Lighthouse Shetland, during the residency she researched the social history aspect of the keepers and their families who stayed, worked and lived at the lighthouse. Connie recorded these experiences in her sketchbook, this then developed by using cloth to construct textile wall hangings, each one decorated with different surface effects and hand stitched techniques.

Do come and see the show if you have not seen it already. Please be aware this is a historic building, so access will be a climb up the stairs to the floors above.

We are a collective of five working artists who meet regularly to share and discuss the progress of our work. Through doing so we have identified a number of common themes; memory, loss, re-emergence and return. These are expressed by each of us through a variety of concepts and techniques. Our practices include drawing, painting and printmaking; sculpture; photography and film;
documentation, installation and live art.
