14 Queen Avenue, Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 4TX, 15 July – 5 August
An acclaimed artist from North Wales is to have an exhibition of her latest work at a gallery in Liverpool city centre. Joanne Thompson’s ‘Fabrication’ will showcase her series of contemporary work inspired by the textile mills of the North-West of England, at the dot-art Gallery, Castle Street, starting on Saturday, July 15th.
The 53-year-old mother-of-two, from Ruabon, near Wrexham, who has created in mostly mixed media since she graduated in 2007, has used the fabric designs from textile mills as inspiration for her contemporary creations.
She has worked from her studio near Wrexham for over a decade and has had previous exhibitions with different themes in Cardiff, Aberystwyth and in several northern English towns. Her work is currently displayed in both private collections and corporate premises.
She says: “I have always tried to create at the point where my own inner reality meets the outside world in a naturally artistic and intuitive way. ‘Fabrication’ is my response to the invention, enlargement, manufacture and construction of textiles and I have used this concept as a catalyst for these compositions. Using old fabric designs from the textile mills of the North West I intend to convey their design elements in an enlarged and contemporary manner.”
The exhibition starts on Saturday and runs to August 5th.
The dot-art Gallery can be found at 14 Queen Avenue, Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 4TX (just 5 minutes’ walk from Liverpool One).
Opening times: Monday – Saturday, 10am-6pm
