Textile art at Authority offices

[Friday 14 May 2010]

An exhibition of work by textile artist Mary Taylor is being staged in the Bainbridge offices of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority until the end of June.

The display in the main reception area of the Yoredale offices is the latest in a series that enables local artists to showcase their work to visitors to the building.

Richard Burnett, the Authority’s Head of Finance and Resources, said: “Yet again we have a display of work that shows the range of skill of our local artists.

“We hope both visitors and those who come to the offices on business will enjoy the exhibition.”

Mary has a studio where she creates and sells her work within Farfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre near Sedbergh.

“I live and work on the edge of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and Morecambe Bay,” she said.

“The patterns and colours of these diverse landscapes inspire much of my work – I love the ever-changing light and the pattern of the seasons in our natural environment.

“I design and create wall pieces and textile jewellery. I layer fabrics, apply heat and then densely machine embroider the resulting textured surface to create unique pieces of work.”

The offices are open from 8.30am to 5 pm Mondays to Fridays apart from bank holidays.
