Textile Artists To Display Their Designs At Museum

Textile artists who call the Cotswolds their home have got together to create a colourful exhibition at the Corinium Museum.

The artists have been inspired by artefacts contained within the museum’s collections as well as those based in the rural landscape around Cirencester and created a range of art and designs showcasing a range of techniques and materials.

The pieces explore a range of artefacts, including Roman stone sculptures and the cult of the Mother Goddess, Anglo Saxon jewellery and Iron Age treasures and people, plus local flora and other local discoveries.

The list of local artists taking part include Linda Babb, Liz Harding, Chris Harley, Alison Harper, Carla Mines, Corinne Renow-Clarke, Carolyn Sibbald, Louise Watson and Lizzie Weir.

Some of the artists above will be at the museum on the opening afternoon of the exhibition – September 12th – to meet the public and this exhibit will run from then until October 3rd. The artists’ work will be for sale, and entry to the temporary exhibitions only is now free.

The Corinium Museum is open from Monday to Saturday, 10am-5pm, and on Sundays from 2pm-5pm. It is also open on Bank Holiday Mondays.

For further information about the exhibition or any events and exhibits being held, please contact the Cirencester venue on 01285 655611 or email museums@cotswold.gov.uk
