Encouragement of art in buckinghamshire

Art in Textiles – a solo show by Barbara Shaw 16th – 24th September 2017

I am thrilled to announce that I will be having my first solo exhibition of ‘Art in Textiles’ in the Stables, (adjacent to the Phoenix Tea Room), Claydon Courtyard, Claydon Estate MK 18 2EX from September 16th-24th 2017, 11–5, closed 21st and 22nd.

‘Art in Textiles’ is an exhibition of unique fabric interpretations of familiar subjects. I use textured, bright and subtle colours, hand-stitching scraps of material together in layers to produce a painterly, distinctive style of artwork. The exhibition will be split into five themes and will include pictures of Creatures where you will get to meet some of my popular sheep, have the opportunity to see some of the work I produced for my Artist-in-Residency at Claydon House and be inspired by Plants and Buckinghamshire Landscapes. I will be demonstrating how I produce my collages. Original work will be for sale together with limited edition prints and cards.

For an inspiring day out why not visit my exhibition in the Stables and combine it with investigating other art and craft businesses in the Courtyard of Claydon Estate, take an enjoyable stroll around the beautiful gardens and have refreshments in the recently refurbished Phoenix Tea Rooms. National Trust Claydon House is open too and well worth exploring.
