Drawing in Between Exhibition Photographs
A selection of my embroideries were exhibited at the Howard Gardens galleries at Cardiff School of art and Design last week as a part of their Drawing in Between symposium and exhibition. The exhibition featured work by artists fro across all disciplines as it sought to explore how Drawing is employed across the visual arts.
In addition to my embroideries there was work that might more traditionally be considered as Drawing by Andre Stitt and Chris Glynn along with ceramics suc as those pictured below produced by Alex McErlain in collaboration with textile artist Alice Kettle.
In addition to this exhibition there was also a symposium held last Friday which was supported by the HEA. I only managed to make it to the afternoon session but there was lots of interesting discussion.
As someone with a background in Fine Art who is currently employing craft techniques it was particularly interesting to note the difference in approaches to drawing from Fine Artists and Craftsmen. The crafts people that spoke talked about drawing in a very practical manner whilst the Fine Artists adopted what I would consider to be a more expansive philosophical approach.
