“Here and Now” Opening weekend

All my trepidation was blown away by this beautifully and excitingly imagined exhibition put together by curator Professor Lesley Millar and Bryony Windsor the Head of Exhibitions at NCCD.

It was great to meet up with some of the other artists and especially meet the Japanese visitors again. The last time I saw them was in Kyoto too long ago now. So here are some photos from the weekend.


Yasuko Fujino discussing her beautiful tapestry “In the garden” with Lesley Millar.


Ai Ito one of the young Japanese artists with her dynamic work “Baltic Travel Diary”.


My tapestry in the distance on a black wall that really lifted the colours..


Lesley Millar centre with Kristin Saedertal in red in front of her tapestry “New Territory”.


Valerie Kirk’s thoughtful tapestry “Floating Fossil” and below the anarchic work “We don’t know what the little bird sings” of Norwegian Tonje Hoydahl Sorli
