Lines & Lineage

05 Jul 2017 - 29 Jul 2017

The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present Lines & Lineage, an exhibition that brings together three Scottish tapestry weavers: Jo Barker, Sara Brennan and Susan Mowatt. All three trained at Edinburgh College of Art and continue their studio practice in Edinburgh today. Each artist in their own distinct way explores colour, tone and material. The artists have a conceptual and abstract approach to their medium which is bold and beautiful and their tapestries are a sensual as well as a visual experience. Weaving is a slow pace medium within a fast pace world, inviting the viewer to pause for a moment.
