Finders Keepers – Tales in Textiles! Touring exhibition by Digswell Alumni Connie Flynn   

Written by Digswell Arts

On January 18, 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, constructing textile wall hangings, each one decorated with different surface effects and hand stitched techniques.

This exhibition has been touring, Shetland Museum (April 2016) and Rayleigh Windmill (Sept/Oct 2016). It will now be exhibited during February 14th – 25th 2017, opening times Tues – Sat 10 30 – 4 30pm at Three Hares Gallery, Cowper & Newton Museum, Orchard Side, Market Place, Olney, MK46 4AJ.  Tel +44 (0)1234 711516

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.
