New Group's first Exhibition at the Knitting and Stitching Shows

'HUE' is a new group of 12 artists who work with textiles and was formed in 2008.

The choice of the name HUE alludes to the shades, subtleties, qualities and the infinite possibilities and combinations of colour that we use and represent as artists.

We are all very different in our artistic practice and compliment each other in our variety of ideas for design and finished work. The members are all experienced textile artists, having exhibited widely and have now come together as HUE to share and exchange ideas and develop as artists. We come from the South Coast to East Anglia and travel to meet together in Hertfordshire with our mentor Anthea Godfrey.
The members of the group are:- Valerie Aitken, Ailsa Bulger, Nicky Callaby, Judith Coxell¸ Gavin Fry, Carola Garvie, Helen Price, Jo Lamb, Grania Little, Stephanie Pettengell, Elisabeth Rutt, and Clare Wood. Visitors will find on display a wide variety of work completed by hand and machine from extensive design sources.

We are delighted that our first exhibition will be at the Knitting and Stitching shows this autumn and hope that visitors will enjoy the wide variety of work on display.’

Below is a taste of the exhibition pieces made by members of 'HUE' that will be in one of the galleries at Alexandra Palace and the Harrogate International Centre.

I'm going to be at Ally Pally on Sunday 10th - will you be there? It's my first time there for years and years... last time I was meant to be going and DS3 had a tummy bug all the night before and that must be 10 years ago at least... I'll look out for your yummy rust fabric anyway!
