Five artists who work with the construction or application of cloth and thread were invited to create fine art installation work in the gallery, 6th February – 28th February 2015. The gallery curators have always held an interest in the delicate space that artists navigate between fine craft and fine art. By incorporating a diversity of textile material, technique or process these works seek to cross the boundaries of artistic practice.
