The Victoria Gallery, Bath, Somerset
23rd May – 24th August
To celebrate the release of his new book, Kaffe Fassett has organized a new exhibition “A Celebration of Flowers” along with one of his long term collaborators and fellow American; Candace Bahouse. The installation includes 40 of Fassett’s quilts and some of Bahouth’s many ornate mosaics mirrors and pieces conceived for being placed outdoors.
Kaffe Fassett is originally from California but moved to England as a student in the 1960s. He is now one of the world’s most renowned textile designers and his work features in museums world wide including in the Victoria and Albert. This exhibition is an exciting riot of colour leaving one feeling uplifted and joyful.
Candace Bahouth is an American artist who settled in Somerset. She is known for her unique mosaics that she makes using fragments of china, natural materials and sometimes pieces of plastics. Her work also features in many museums including the Victoria and Albert.
If you are visiting the lovely Georgian city of Bath any time soon, you might want to pop into the Victoria Gallery to see the exhibition or even attend some of the talks that are being held by both of the artists. More can be found on the Victoria Gallery website:
