‘From Woods to Water’ Exhibition by Kerry Thomas
24/12/2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until 25/01/2020
Kerry Thomas is an artist and maker based near Lockerbie. In this exhibition, Kerry has created a collection of pictures using the themes of woods and water, two of the key habitats in Dumfries & Galloway. She specialises in creating pictures using wool and other fibres in a process called needle-felting, which uses a type of barbed needle to felt fibres together. Her work in this media is mainly landscapes, seascapes and woodland scenes, and each of her pieces is original artwork, including each greetings card. Some of these pictures are also embellished with machine and hand stitching, and she frames all of her own pictures using box frames to separate the fibres from the glass to give the viewer the scene through a window. Her other work on exhibition here is in mixed media, using mainly watercolours in a more abstract form but also based on the theme of landscapes. This exhibition of Kerry’s work will show the versatility of techniques she uses in creating her pictures in these two very different mediums.
