Janet Rawlins: Life in the Dales

Janet Rawlins: Life in the Dales

Details

Janet Rawlins (b. 1931) grew up in Horsforth, Leeds, and studied for an NDD at Leeds College of Art (now Leeds Arts University) from 1947-1952. Rawlins trained as an illustrator of children’s books and also carried out commissions for large scale machine embroidered fabric collages. She exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy in the 1950s and 60s. Rawlins draws her inspiration from the Yorkshire Dales where she lives and is best known for her landscapes in fabric collage and watercolour.

As part of this exhibition, we have invited two recent graduates, Sonia Moran (Leeds Arts University, 2018) and Rosa Hackett (Glasgow School of Art, 2019), to respond to Rawlins through their soft sculptural practices.

This exhibition has been curated by Rachael Hickson Pearce, Alumni Relations and Development Officer and Caroline Pratt, Senior Lecturer on BA (Hons) Textile Design.

OPENING NIGHT: 5–7PM THURSDAY 12 SEPTEMBER
Free entry. Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome. Booking not required.
