Picture of the Month

July 2020
by Bhamini Markella

Colourful stained glass effect made from fabric
Embroidered Window
Fabric and embroidery
55 x 55cm

I have chosen Bhamini Markella's piece, Embroidered Window.

A bright and uplifting piece of work, I admire the bold use of colour. I love the fact that Bhamini is re-cycling fabrics for her embroideries creating fabulous pictures from unwanted scraps.

The influence of India is very manifest and a special delight to me having recently spent a wonderful month there.

Chosen from our online Gallery by Lou Jessop


Museum Highlights

This figure looks to be cooped up indoors? To find out more about this rather different linocut and the artist behind it, take a look at our Museum Highlight.

The Museum Highlights gallery has had a re-vamp, so you can now see all highlights featured so far.
