Artist / Curator talks
Reality of Small Differences exhibition: textile art by disabled artists
Friday 12th Sept at 6.30 pm
at Inkwell 31 Potternewton Lane, Chapel Allerton, Leeds LS7 3LW
This month at Inkwell you can hear from Carrie Scott-Huby, one of the artists in the Reality of Small Differences exhibition, about her practice and inspiration. Researching philosophy and scientific theories, Carrie’s work emerges intuitively and creates its own individual visual narrative. As well as the textile work shown in the exhibition, Carrie works in a range of media and she will be talking about her work as a whole. Fundamental to her practice is a love of drawing.
You will also hear from Gill Crawshaw, who co-ordinated this exhibition, who will give the background to the project and explain her own involvement. The exhibition was a response at first to the fact that Grayson Perry’s popular tapestry series, The Vanity of Small Differences, is on display in Leeds in a venue that is inaccessible to many disabled people. The exhibition of disabled artists’ work developed into a significant event in its own right, displaying works by eight Yorkshire-based artists.
This event is free. There is no need to book.
Refreshments will be available from our cafe bar.
