On Monday we drove to Gliffaes in South Wales for a rather nice treat. Tuesday we visited a friend in Treharris and then went on to Aberdare and the Cynon Valley Museum and Art Gallery where Linda and Laura Kemshall are holding an exhibition called 'With Hand and Heart'
It was absolutely lovely to see such a profusion of first class textile work all in one place and beautifully displayed. Even John, who claims to be the least artistic person around, was bowled over by the themes, textures and extremely high quality of it all.
I will leave you with a few of the photos I took, with permission of course. The exhibition runs until 10th September and is well worth the visit. There is more information on Linda and Laura's link above. (Don't forget to click to enlarge!)
PS John has just pointed out to me that there are no people in the photographs though there were quite a lot in the gallery. I had to tell him that I was very good and sneaky about when I took the photos and then rather clever in not posting those with people's heads and bodies in the way either, and a few ladies saw me with the camera and dove behind a pillar too. It was the artwork I wanted you to see, not a load of very excited ladies wishing they could do such wonderful work. :-)
