Leah Stuart - Holidaying in Nuneaton

Nuneaton through the eyes of a visitor – that’s what Leah’s hoping to capture with this incredible selection of textiles. Architectural details around the town, as well as references to its history, are highlighted using Leah’s fantastic use of textile techniques. Not just beautiful as artworks but also inspiring us to look again at the beauty around us – a real treat for the spring.

Image of Connie, whose war-time experience inspires this exhibition.

Tracey Watson - Connie's War

  • 1 June — 21 July 2019

An exhibition featuring textiles, prints and ceramics based on the wartime experience of the artist’s grandmother Connie, who lived in Coventry during the Blitz. With contemporary images of flora and fauna and brightly coloured designs, this locally inspired exhibition takes inspiration from the bombing of Coventry and the ruins of the Cathedral.

The historical references and local touches make this a powerful show for anyone hoping to learn more about the war from a personal point of view.
