TRUG – growing inspiration

TRUG – an exhibition of ceramics, baskets, photographs and paintings, inspired by plants.

“Many artists and makers have a deep rooted (forgive the pun!) interest in nature, are knowledgeable about growing flowers, fruit, vegetables, crops –  and often cultivate their own plants for inspiration or as raw material for their creative work. This exhibition shows how diverse the results can be! “ Anne Kennedy, Curator & gallery owner.

We are delighted to include four basketmakers in the TRUG exhibition – contemporary baskets from Sue Kirk Willow Baskets, trugs from Angela Cole at Yorkshire Willow Baskets, a collection from Marianne van Niekerken at Crafty Basketry and a selection of Rosie Farey’s Miniature Baskets.
