The lurgy has gone, so I got out to Henley on Thames, usually associated with rowing, to see the Water, Water exhibition, curated by Kate Findlay, she of the series of quilts based on the Large Hadron Collider. I did my helper stint with Kate and with Delia Salter, she of "The Shipping Forecast" fame, ( blog post by Margaret Cooter, here). The venue was lovely, lots of natural light from roof windows, and a nifty front door that slides down the side of the building. Not surprisingly given the theme, the overwhelming impression of this exhibition is blue, in all shades, with some taupes, greens and flashes of red and orange. Photos below of my favourites ( and my own quilts in situ) not in any particular order. I didn't get a photo of the lovely piece based on Skye, by Delia Salter, as it was tricky to photograph and I didn't get every artists' name, so apologies.
Mary Munday ( and me)
Alicia Merrett ( that's the radiator at the bottom, no matter how much it looks like two lines of stitching)
Artists' names not noted
Even after all of that inspiration, the quilter in me couldn't resist these pavement slabs round the corner.
