The Potential of Pattern - Sunny Bank Mills

 

Jenny Haynes - Modern Times Quilt

The Potential of Pattern exhibition is on in the Gallery at Sunny Bank Mills until Christmas 2020 which hopefully means you will get a chance to see it when the current lockdown ends.

Pattern: the underlying arrangement used to organise a surface or structure in a consistent, regular manner. This can be by the repetition of a shape, form, colour, rule or sequence. Exploring this theme, the artists and makers in this exhibition all uniquely reference pattern in their work, whether through process, inspiration or form.

Above and below are my top pics from the exhibition.  Here are examples of surface pattern design from Millie Rothera...

I think Jenny Haynes' Modern Times quilt was the star of the show!

Sunny Bank Mills has plenty of car parking, cafes and of course the Gallery which includes a shop. It's well worth a visit!
