Project Ability presents its first ever Textile Exhibition ‘STITCHED’

For this exhibition a select few artists were invited to make new work. There is a wonderful mix of exhibitors, including Doreen Kay and Cameron Morgan, who are both long-time Project Ability artists. Elie Coutts is a textile artist working in Shetland.  Tzipporah Johnston is a neurodivergent textile based artist working in Glasgow. Also participating is a  small group of artists from Edinburgh at the Garvald studios.

There is a playful mix of work going on in this exhibition. From Tzipporah Johnston’s exquisitely created 3-dimensional textile works featuring eyes peering out at you from within glass domes, to the more traditional embroidery which hangs on the walls. Doreen Kay’s cats and birds have been lovingly stitched onto felt and canvas and show the softer side of a textile practice. Cameron Morgan’s style comes through in his wonderful embroidered artworks; ranging from bugs, birds and insects and crossing over to many well known and loved film and music stars such as Elvis, Laurel and Hardy, Batman and Robin and Wonder Woman!

This textile exhibition will be a delightful feast for the eyes and will show audiences several different techniques and styles for working with embroidery, thread and needle.
