The King George Gallery 8th Sept - 10th Oct 2014

Over the past fifteen years local artist Joy Pitts has gathered 30,000 labels from the neck of used and discarded clothing. The woven labels have been assembled in sculpture and on canvas in images such as a Dairy Cow and Mute Swan, subjects that have been selected because of their practical or aesthetic association with humans. Recently commissioned by Sir Paul Smith for his collection, a print of Red Rabbit and maquettes showing how the work developed will also be exhibited. More information...
