Stockport Open Contemporary Exhibition

I was delighted to have my 2 submissions selected for this year's Stockport Open Contemporary Exhibition at Stockport Art Gallery - especially as the competition was so strong this year! I went to the preview last night and there's a great variety of original work and some really breath-taking pieces. Well worth a visit if you're near enough!
 Detail from my first canvas - "Between the Lines". I love quilts, especially when they include bits representing family history and memories; this is my mixed media/paper version ...

My second canvas is called "Tokens of Affection" - if you like the text background technique see my tutorial below!
The exhibition is free and runs from today until 31st August (the gallery is closed on Mondays and Sundays), and most work is for sale.


  1. Saw your beautiful work at the preview last night- I love the snippets of text in there- like hidden secrets. It is a great exhibition:)

    1. Thanks so much hon :-) It is a really nice exhibition, best so far I think. I didn't see your work, though only had a quick look round on Friday. Am going again soon so will look out for it! x
