The Nottage is a local maritime museum located on Wivenhoe Quay, with a fine collection of paintings, photographs and models all with local connections and is becoming known for summer exhibitions. To learn more you can visit their website:
This year the exhibition was for textile art, organised by local textile artist Janet Harker (who also has work on show in the exhibition).
Valerie introduces you to several of the artists whose work was on display, and you can see they are a varied, talented and eclectic group – including a milliner – all of whom are local to Wivenhoe.
if you are interested in seeing more of the work by Eliza Kentridge – visit her website by clicking here: www.elizakentridge.com
We have interviews with Susan Rhodes and Janet Harker still to edit so you will be able to learn more about both of them soon.
