This exhibition in partnership with Rochester Art Gallery features internationally-renowned textile artist and designer Margo Selby. The exhibition showcases her beautiful hand-woven framed textiles, including new pieces made especially for this show, along with an archive of her design work which reveals the creative process. The artworks use a technique called Lampas, a historic woven structure that was developed in the 17th century by Huguenot weavers to create decorative brocade fabrics. Margo is now using these weave structures in a new way to create stunning geometric framed works with a modernist feel.
This colourful exhibition showcases the prolific portfolio of work Margo has created in her 15 year career, along with preparatory work that reveals the extraordinary processes that go into handwoven textiles. This is Margo Selby’s first major solo show in the UK and most of the work will be for sale.
The exhibition takes place in both Rochester Art Gallery and the Huguenot Museum. Rochester Art Gallery is on the ground floor of the Visitor Information Centre, we are on the first floor. Rochester Art Gallery is free and open Mon-Sat, 10am – 5pm. Admission to Huguenot Museum, £4 adults/£3 concession.
