Exhibitions Coming Soon
Exhibition: ‘Alphabet Quilts’
From 1st April to 25th June
A quilting exhibition inspired by the alphabet in
its many forms. Quilters from three local groups
have risen to the creative challenge of interpreting
alphabets and letters using many techniques.
These range from depicting a single modern
letter, medieval forms on silk to whole alphabets
in books and quilts and a tactile version devised
for blind children. There is a joint project of an
Abingdon Alphabet portraying the history, people
and places of our town. There are demonstrations
From 1st April to 30th April
First in a series of three Oxfordshire based artists presenting artworks in the Attic Galley case. Tom Crask makes ‘Memory Boxes’ constructed from found objects and reclaimed boxes. Each construction hints at some half-remembered story and conforms to its own unique set of internal rules.
