Works most artful & ingenious: Embroidery by Ann Grey
August 1 - October 12, 2014
Highly original and strikingly beautiful contemporary needlework is the subject of Works most artful & ingenious: Embroidery by Ann Grey, the first comprehensive exhibition of this Chatham artist’s career. The Atwood House Museum is excited to be able to present some 30 examples of Grey’s work, many of which have never been publically exhibited before. The exhibition will open visitors’ eyes to the potential of a medium often considered limiting. Along with the finished pieces the exhibition will explore Grey’s creative process by including works in progress, examples of her drawings, and several of the artist’s handmade “notebooks” in which she records experiments that find their way into her work.
