is a contemporary textile collective of 14 emerging and established artists, designers and researchers based in South West England. As artists selected for the Holburne Open they will use the time and space at the Edge to work together to experiment and develop ideas as part of their research for their touring exhibition, A Visible Thread
, due to open in September 2022. Using the Andrew Brownsword Gallery as a test space they will challenge one another and their audiences to experiment, rethink relationships with thread, investigate its materiality, possibilities and limitations, take part and play.
Jack Lewdjaw will be displaying his work alongside seam.
The gallery is open from Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 4pm.
The seam artists taking part are: Angie Parker, Gill Hewitt, Helen MacRitchie, Jane Colquhoun, Joy Merron, Julie Heaton, Lou Baker, Lydia Needle, Nina Gronw-Lewis, Oly Bliss, Desiree Jeans and Penny Wheeler.
