A NEW art exhibition is set to begin in York this weekend.

Curated by Lotte Inch Gallery, York Theatre Royal will begin the showcase of ‘Cloth and Colour: An Exhibition of Quilts’ by artist Matthew Miller.

It will be the first of the Lotte Inch Gallery’s ‘beyond the gallery walls’ projects.

Lotte says a turbulent 2020 meant that she had to close her gallery premises in Bootham earlier this year, but she says she has stayed committed her craft.

This new installation is a collection of textile pieces, drawing inspiration from the quilters of Gee’s Bend, Alabama, in the 20th century.

A preview of the event is set to take place between 11.30am and 1.30pm this Saturday, November 13. The show will then run until November 30, from 1pm to 5pm on a Monday, 9am to 10pm on Tuesday to Saturday, and will be closed on Sundays.

Lotte said: "It coincides quite happily and by chance with an exhibition of Matthew’s

father’s paintings currently on display at Partisan restaurant in Micklegate."

From Kilburn to Hawnby: An exhibition of landscape oil paintings of North Yorkshire by Peter Miller, runs untilNovember 30.
