Margo Selby’s first solo exhibition
Rochester Art Gallery and the Huguenot Museum are delighted to announce their first partnership exhibition, featuring internationally-renowned textile artist and designer Margo Selby.
We are showcasing her beautiful hand-woven framed textiles, including new pieces made especially for this show, along with an archive of her design work and the processes behind them. The pieces on display are part of an ongoing collection of hand-woven artworks created using a technique called Lampas. Lampas is a term for a historic woven structure that was developed in the 17th century by French weavers to create decorative brocade fabrics, and brought to England by Huguenot refugees. Margo is now using these weave structures in a new way to create stunning geometric framed works with a modernist feel.
