Speed Date the Artists! – ‘Tailored’ by The 62 Group Closing Event
2nd July 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join us in the Gallery on the closing weekend of our current exhibition ‘Tailored’, at 2pm on Sunday 2nd July to learn more from the artists about the processes, research and ideas behind some of the incredible work in the show.
The exhibition features new work from 24 international textile artists, exploring themes of gender roles, family history, Yorkshire’s industrial heritage and more.
Each artist will have just 6 minutes to talk, before you’re whisked off to another area of the Gallery to listen to someone else!
You’ll hear from…
Hannah Lamb, Jane Mckeating, Caroline Bartlett, Paddy Killer, Mark McCleish, Helen Davies, Jane Walkley, and curators Ealish Wilson and Claire Barber.
There will be some time left over at the end of the ‘dating’ to speak to the artists directly and ask them any burning questions you may have.
Tea, coffee and cake will be available from our Tea Room, and our Gallery Shop will be open as usual.
This event is FREE ENTRY, but please reserve a ticket to give us an idea of numbers.
