Galloway textiles collective with invited artist, Roger Lever

Bookshop Gallery 2 – 31 Aug 2015

10.30am - 5pm

Celebrating EAFS 2015, Galloway textiles collective intertwine will be exhibiting, along with invited artist Roger Lever, at the Mill on the Fleet, Gatehouse of Fleet, throughout August.

As part of the satellite programme, the show will reflect both the themes of EAFS 2015 and the diversity of practice of the individual members of the collective. The EAFS 2015 themes could hardly be better for us. Textiles is a rich and broad area, quintessentially reflective of our relationship with our environment, for good and ill, and also with who we are - creatures of community and settlement, of journeying and migration, of consumption and conservation, of creativity and celebration.
