An exhibition of abstract stitched textiles by Patricia Kelly – to 27 Oct

Sunburst Gallery, Ards Art Centre, Town Hall, Conway Square, Newtownards

Patricia, who lives in Co. Fermanagh, attended the Ulster University in Belfast where she obtained a B.A Honors degree in Fine Craft Design. Specialising in embroidered textiles, Patricia has always been inspired by the ever-changing colour, light and texture of the landscape and skies in the west of Ireland. She constantly pushes her work in new directions exploring images through drawing and paint, but finally realising her outcomes through the medium of textile employing the use of free motion embroidery techniques.

Patricia’s work has become much more abstract in recent times with a greater focus on the use of the stitched line. The repetitive use of shape and mark has become an increasingly important aspect of her work which imbues a meditative quality. As part of her exhibition, Patricia will be facilitating a one-day workshop ‘Exploring Line in the Landscape’ on Saturday 16 October at Ards Arts Centre.
