HVA Members news .... Jo Atherton's latest exhibition opens at The National Maritime Museum in Cornwall.  We hear from Connie Flynn about her latest body of work exhibited at the Upstairs Gallery in Berkhamsted, HVA Members recent successes at the Pastel Society 2015 Open Exhibition, and Kim Major-George featured in the Spring edition of Craft & Design Magazine.

'STRANDED', 2 Feb-5 July 2015

The saying goes that one person’s trash is another’s treasure and that is certainly the case for Hertfordshire born artist, Jo Atherton. With a new exhibition opening on February 2 at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth, Stranded features her colourful tapestries, created from fishing line, netting, rope and other unexpected items left washed up on our beaches by the great ocean currents.  See full article and further images.
