Cheshire Textiles
CT@30

TUESDAY 2 OCTOBER 2018 – TUESDAY 30 OCTOBER 2018

The Exhibition is a 30 year celebration for this innovative group of Artists whose work reflects a diverse interpretation of the term Textiles. Members work with a wide rangeof materials and experimental approaches including the use of wood, plastics and paper as well as fabrics and threads. During the group’s lifetime, their practice has evolved and continued to move forward with constant experimentation and research. Co- founder and current member Elizabeth Mott says of the group, ‘It was started to satisfy a need for us to use our Creative Embroidery qualifications in a purposeful way.’ In the Exhibition, you will be able to see new work, exploring responses to a variety of themes, as well as images and samples which give an insight into some of the processes used by each Artist.

The Danny Project – Halton Histories

THURSDAY 8 NOVEMBER 2018 – FRIDAY 23 NOVEMBER 2018

In 2004, volunteers from Halton and surrounding areas saved the Manchester Ship Canal’s last remaining steam tugboat, the Danny, from the scrapyard. The aim was to restore her so that future generations could see and experience away of life that had almost completely disappeared. For this exhibition, pupils from six primary schools across Halton have worked with Danny volunteers and artists from Interference Art to create a show capturing the connection created across generations and the resonance of the Danny’s story for local children today. Children and volunteers will be presenting a Danny Day at the Brindley on Monday 12th November.

‘Constructing the Mersey Gateway Bridge’

Drawings and paintings by Shaun Smyth.

MONDAY 18 FEBRUARY 2019 – FRIDAY 5 APRIL 2019

The River Mersey has played a significant role throughout Artist Shaun Smyth’s life; his proximity to it persists in being a source of inspiration for his work. The selection of paintings and drawings for his ‘Constructing the Mersey Gateway Bridge’ exhibition are an introduction to his ongoing exploration of the changing geographical landscape of Halton. They also serve to historically document this continually changing landscape, in particular the construction and development of the innovative Mersey Gateway Bridge. and enjoy an exhibition of work by local pupils from the Grange School.
