An Exhibition

One of the other things I've been working on over the summer was a piece of work for the following ERTF exhibition which opens tomorrow. If you get a chance to visit Cambridge over the next couple of weeks do try to pop in and take a look. There is plenty of exciting work covering many types of textiles, not only embroidery. And there is a shop selling all manner of lovely textile goodies. I'll be there stewarding an a few of the days so if you happen to spot me please come and say hello!


The following is a preview of the piece of work I had accepted together with my personal statement for this exhibition:

For this exhibition Gina has explored her role within the family. For most of her adult life Gina has felt herself defined by her relationships to others in particular Wife and Mother. This piece is about emerging from these roles as a woman in her own right… Moving Forward...


The Birth Of Woman

    What a lovely pice of work - Venus arising with all the feminine references in the background. I am stewarding at ERTF and look forward to seeing the piece 'in the flesh'

  2. OK missis, when are you going to be there? I reckon I can fit in a very quick jaunt during one of my 2.5 hour mornings. You know I'd come and look anyway but if there's a shop too, it would be rude to resist!

  4. Hope the exhibition is a big success. You can see the progression you have made recently through this work. I'd love to come and see it in place but I don't think I'll make it this time. Good luck with the exhibition.

  11. As always, beautiful work Gina. I hope the exhibition goes well for you.

    Reading your last post, I'd be interested to know how you get on at life drawing classes. A friend of mine has taken it up and has become totally absorbed. Her work is wonderful.

    Good luck. x
