Journeys undertaken by the artist with different companions, including a mountaineer, a dear stalker, ramblers, geologists, and conservationists are documented in the format of Ordinance Survey maps.
Galloway textiles collective with invited artist, Roger Lever
Bookshop Gallery 2 – 31 Aug 2015
10.30am - 5pm
Celebrating EAFS 2015, Galloway textiles collective intertwine will be exhibiting, along with invited artist Roger Lever, at the Mill on the Fleet, Gatehouse of Fleet, throughout August.
As part of the satellite programme, the show will reflect both the themes of EAFS 2015 and the diversity of practice of the individual members of the collective. The EAFS 2015 themes could hardly be better for us. Textiles is a rich and broad area, quintessentially reflective of our relationship with our environment, for good and ill, and also with who we are - creatures of community and settlement, of journeying and migration, of consumption and conservation, of creativity and celebration.
Take a journey through time and discover the story of how fishing has changed along the Solway coast over the years. The seafood featured is still fished commercially today providing an important part of our rural economy.

Holly is a recent Glasgow School of Art graduate and is showing a new body of work that ranges in scale, from intimate hand-held objects to large architectural forms that respond to the gallery space, that activate and reflect upon the ephemeral nature of the sculpture.
