Audrey Walker

21 July – 23 September 2018

Observations – a retrospective

In this year of celebrations at Ruthin, we mark the gallery’s long term association with Audrey Walker as she reaches the age of ninety. Momentary glances, encounters, inward smiles, the simple pleasures of life have long fascinated the artist, as has the ability of centuries old images to make powerful connections with today. Observations traces these interests over five decades of work in thread, stitch and cloth that has been gathered together from public and private collections in the UK and USA.

“When the history of British textile art comes to be written, then the name Audrey Walker will figure prominently.” Dr Jennifer Harris
