The Medieval Historian and I went to the Stroud International Textiles Select 2014 today. We went to the main exhibition in the Museum in the Park, which was fine, and had some nice work by Caroline Bartlett, but the majority was not really what I would call textiles. Nice though it was, there seemed to be quite a lot of ceramics and paper. Another venue, The Pink Cabbage Gallery, had some absolutely wonderful work by a group called Sticky Paper whose members include Liz Valenti, Diane Jefferies, Tamsin Golesworthy, Susi Harries and Gabriel Broad. The works were in paper, but I really loved everything in the show. The website for Sticky Paper gives a good overview of the collection. The show was paper works mainly about clothing, but there were some very nice boats as well. I would really recommend this show, which is a short walk up the main hill through Stroud and is on until 24 May 2014.
