Textiles in Transition

Ucheldre Centre

Gallery Exhibition Opening

Dorothy Russell

The art Dorothy exhibits is usually produced by painting, printing, piecing, quilting and embellishing textiles. Her work as a textile artist has gained her recognition and awards. Some of this work can be seen on the Portfolio pages of her website. As a Quilt artist, she takes inspiration from many sources, including the natural world, politics, news and history.

Her work includes traditional and contemporary approaches, but always at its heart is a fascination with the materials themselves. Silk particularly attracts her with its lustrous quality and glowing acceptance of paints and dyes. She cannot imagine working in any other medium – there is so much yet to discover.

Exhibition runs until 11 July

Admission Free
