An exhibition in partnership with Sunny Bank Mills featuring work from members of West Yorkshire Print Workshop, responding to the word ‘source’ and its meaning to the artists’ practices.
Source is Sunny Bank Mills first exhibition in 2023 and is part of their programme of exhibitions and engagement that celebrates textiles and their place in the local community and economy.
Sunny Bank Mills produced high quality worsted cloth that was shipped worldwide, but it is rooted in Yorkshire and its landscape: water, hills, sheep, stone. The textile heritage of Yorkshire, the weaving of wool into cloth and the stories of the people who worked in the Mills is both our heritage and that of many West Yorkshire villages and it is this that we want to celebrate in 2023.
2023 is the 10th anniversary of the Gallery, marking 10 years of arts and culture at Sunny Bank Mills which they are celebrating all year long including their archive and the regeneration of the Mill, its industrial legacy as a weaver of fine worsted cloth and its future.
Featuring work from; Angela Hall, Bianca Wallis-Salmon, Clare Carter, Clare Phelan, Fiona Armer, Graham Riding, Helen Campbell, Helen Trevisiol Duff, Ian Wrench, Janine Burrows, Jim Bond, Judith Brown, June Russell, J.D. Lewis, Kathryn Fox, Liadin Cooke, Maggie Thompson, Nobuo Okawa and Susan Wright.
Duration: Sat 14 January – Sun 5 March 2023
