Kate Gorman in residency - Week 2

American textile artist Kate Gorman has been with us for a week now, and is settling well in her studio.

"I can't believe how fortunate I am to have time and space to work in this wonderful setting. I have met many of the regular artists here and I look forward to seeing their work as I continue to work on my own piece. 

The piece I started last week, featuring my great-grandmother at her sewing machine, has started to come together, but I think I need to visit a few local museums to get a better feel for the time and place (Glasgow tenements at the turn of the last century),  so I am headed out this afternoon for Coatbridge and the Glasgow Tenement House. 

Here is a preliminary drawing of the piece that will be drawn with dyes on fabric.

When I am not in the studio, I have been stitching and drawing and looking; trying to take in all of this wonderful city and country."

Kate Gorman will give a talk about her practice on Thursday 15 October at 12pm noon. Everybody welcome.
