Two of our members, Liz Brown and Jane Locke, have come together to collaborate on a very interesting exhibition of felt and fine art. Click on the link for an invitation.
Venue: Gallery space at the Phoenix Park visitor centre
A Seed of Truth: an exhibition inspired by the life and work of Ernest Douglas” takes place from 14th to 29th of November inclusive in the gallery space at the Phoenix Park visitor centre. The exhibition is the work of Scottish-based textile artist Liz Brown and Irish-based visual artist Jane Locke.
The inspiration for the exhibition resulted from a chance find by Liz in 2007 of an old book wrapped in felt when helping clear a friend’s attic. Further research revealed that the book contained the records of unusual botanical experiments carried out by Scotsman Ernest Douglas over a century ago.
The show is a collaboration between Liz, who specialises in felt making, and Jane Locke an artist and scientist whose work investigates the relationship between science and nature through drawings, paintings and installation pieces. The show promises to be a fascinating exploration of Ernest Douglas’ experiments through felt and mixed media.
The Opening – to which you are all invited – takes place from 2-4pm on Saturday 14th November and the exhibition runs until the 29th November.
