The Beach Woman, Audrey Walker Ruthin Craft Centre

21 September 1 December 2013

This major exhibition, curated by June Hill, celebrates the work of Goldsmiths College Textile Department during the period 1975-88 when Audrey Walker was Head of Textiles. Rendezvous Goldsmiths marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of her retirement after thirteen years in post and her subsequent move to live and work in west Wales. The exhibition is a celebration of the impact her period of tenure had on staff and students alike and of its continuing influence on UK textile practice. Some 25 years later, it is clear that this was a very special time which involved an exceptional group of people as both staff and students. It features a mix of new works and classic pieces from over 30 seminal makers.

Artists include: Jeanette Appleton, Heather Belcher, Michael Brennand-Wood, Dawn Dupree, Matthew Harris, Rozanne Hawksley, James Hunting, Alice Kettle, Mary Restieaux, Lynn Setterington, Eirian and Dennis Short, with new work from Audrey Walker.
