ARTIST TEXTILES Picasso to Warhol at the Fashion & Textile Exhibition

This exhibition traces the history of 20th century art in textiles. Highlights include work by Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Sonia Delaunay, Raoul Dufy, Barbara Hepworth, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, Ben Nicholson and Andy Warhol.

The exhibition features examples of key European and American art movements: Fauvism, Cubism, Constructivism, Abstraction, Surrealism and Pop Art; as well as the work of leading fashion designers and manufacturers. Artist Textiles shows how ordinary people were once able to engage with modern art in a personal and intimate way through their clothing and home furnishings. With over 200 rare pieces, many of which have not been on public display before.

I think this should be a real treat for anyone who has an interest in textiles. ???For more information or to buy tickets in advance, please see the website.??? We'll meet in the shop area, which you can enter before buying a ticket, at 11.00 and go in to the exhibition at 11.15.

Ticket Prices:

£8 for adults

£5.50 for students and concessions

50% off full price ticket for Art Fund members

After viewing the exhibition, depending on what those attending want to do, we'll go somewhere locally (perhaps the museum's cafe) for food/drinks and a chat.
