HAMPSHIRE’S internationally-renowned textile artist Alice Kettle will showcase her most recent creations in The Willis Museum’s Sainsbury Gallery from Saturday.
Alice, who lives in Winchester, has created a new exhibition called Allegory which tells a story through her extraordinary, large-scale wall hangings.
The free-entry exhibition, which runs until March 22, features a stunning centrepiece panel, several smaller works and three-dimensional sketches.
A new ceramic piece by artist Stephen Dixon made, during his residency at the Victoria and Albert Museum, will also be on display. Kettle and Dixon have collaborated on other works in the show, including an artist’s book.
The exhibition is a touring exhibition on loan from the Crafts Study Centre, University for the Creative Arts, and has been touring the UK for the past year.
Councillor Margaret Snaith-Tempia, executive member for culture and recreation, said: “Hampshire County Council is delighted to hold this exhibition by a local internationally-renowned artist whose work is already on display in Winchester Discovery Centre. Basingstoke is the last venue in the tour and we are proud to host it.”
The exhibition includes work for sale. An illustrated book has been published by the Crafts Study Centre to accompany the exhibition, priced £7.99.
