Textile artist Alice Kettle will be holding a solo-exhibition at the Gallery at Winchester Discovery Centre from 28 October 2017 till 14 January 2018. The exhibition marks 10 years since her large-scale public artwork 'Looking Forwards to the Past, 2007', which is permanently housed at the Winchester Discovery Centre. The exhibition is open during regular gallery opening hours and admission is free.
From a distance, Alice Kettle's art works could easily be mistaken for paintings, but up close they change entirely. As a textile artist, Alice uses a variety of materials and threads to create multilayered artworks with intricate details that become noticeable the more you study them. When you picture an artist, a artist perched at a sewing machine is probably not the first image that comes to mind, but this is the main method Alice uses to create her pieces, along with hand stitching and digital stitching.
The Winchester Discovery Centre gallery is open from 9am till 7pm Monday to Friday, from 9am till 5pm on Saturday and from 11am till 3pm on Sunday. The gallery is located on Jewry St, Winchester and is about a 12 mile drive from Southampton. To find out more about the exhibition visit the Hampshire Cultural Trust website and to see more of Alice's work head to her own website.
