The Joan Eardley Tapestry | Dovecot Studios
Tuesday 10th August | 11am (20 mins)
Join Christina Jansen in conversation with Anne Morrison-Hudson (Joan Eardley's niece) and Dovecot Master Weaver Naomi Robertson. To mark our Joan Eardley Centenary exhibition this August, the Artist’s Estate and The Gallery have working in partnership with Dovecot Studios to create a new tapestry commission in honour of Joan Eardley; which was woven in 2021 before being unveiled at our Centenary exhibition. This special tapestry interprets Eardley’s painting July Fields, 1959 (from the City Art Centre Collection), and was woven haute-lisse using a high-warp loom at Dovecot Studios. This very special commission offers a new way in which to closely study and engage with Eardley’s unique composition, palette and mark-making.
