And here it is, the result of our labours! We were delighted to welcome Sue Clay back on 30.6.17 to present our wall hanging. It formed part of her gallery’s Art Week exhibition at Mytholmbridge Gallery, at the bottom of Luke Lane, Thongsbridge. We are so proud of it we are hoping to have some cards printed of the image, which will be on sale in aid of Friend to Friend. The actual hanging is also going to be available for sale. Please contact us if you would like to offer a bid.
The story of how it came to be can be found below the photographs.
Here is the story of our Circles Project:
In March 2017 the Holmfirth Project Group began a new project with Holmfirth ArtWeek in mind. Working alongside textile artist Sue Clay (pictured here), the Holmfirth Project Group created a fabulous piece which was exhibited at Sue’s Gallery in Thongsbridge during Art Week (Sun 2nd to Sat 8th July 2017).
Our project theme of “Circles” was inspired by artist F. Hundertwasser, whose paintings feature strong, vibrant colours in imaginative landscapes with lots of circles and spirals. Below are a couple of his paintings to give you an idea.
He was very much a ‘free spirit’, pushing against convention, and one of his messages to us was that we can all be creative, all are individuals, and we should basically suit ourselves in life! The superstar group of Friend to Friend members who worked with Sue over the weeks of the project really enjoyed letting go of any hesitations and getting stuck in, and we hope you are as impressed as we are with their creation.
