I'm delighted to announce that my latest piece, 'Medusae Miscellanea', was selected from over 1000 entries to join the Coventry Open 2023 exhibition held at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry.
The Coventry Open celebrates the quality and diversity of art being produced in Coventry and the wider West Midlands region - and the work is truly diverse, from mixed media sculpture and video to oil painting, drawing and photography. And now, traditional counted thread embroidery!
It's the first time I've entered a fine art exhibition so this is a fantastic demonstration of how a very functional piece of embroidery, made using traditional techniques, is a work of art in its own right.
Medusae Miscellanea is on show at the Herbert until 21 May 2023 so do go along to see her - entrance is free and the cafe does very tasty food. You can also satisfy your inner child: Dippy the Diplodocus is currently on loan to the Herbert from the Natural History Museum in London, and who doesn't love a dinosaur?
P.S. Medusa now has a starring role in Warwickshire World, our regional newspaper!
