The 62 Group aim to incorporate and challenge the boundaries of textile practice through an ambitious and innovative annual programme of exhibitions. We are delighted to welcome them to Lymington for the first time. Since its establishment, the 62 Group has been able to count some of the most highly regarded British textile artists as its members.
This exhibition will be built around a series created especially for us by Emily Jo Gibbs called ‘The Boat Builders’, portraits of apprentices working at the Berthon Boat Company. This will be accompanied by member’s work exploring the working relationship that artists have with the world around them and in particular artwork that investigates the creative dialogue that takes place between the artist/maker and the themes: people, place, materials, objects.
