Art in the Frame Foundation this evening held the opening of A Diversity Group Exhibition at The Harbour Gallery, entitled A Sense of Place.
The opening evening was extremely well attended and the standard of exhibits was impressively high. Guests enjoyed meeting the artists and understanding their incredible achievements. Jurat Fisher Lieutenant Bailiff and Mrs Fisher officially opened the Exhibition which runs until 2nd November.
With the advancement of new technology, artists in contemporary textile work are pushing the boundaries of their skills and what they can achieve with the marriage of techniques and materials.

Interspersed amongst the textile works Jacqui Carrel is showing some of her photography and Andrew Sinclair is displaying many of his ceramic pieces, I’ve picked out a few to show you here.
