Changes

Diverse Threads have been taking a years sabbatical from exhibiting in order to concentrate on developing our work.

During this time one member has left the group and two new members have joined. We are delighted that Jane Hare and Linda Crooks have become part of the group. They will be providing individual pages for the website shortly. We should all be updating our individual pages in the next month, so keep an eye out for new work and information.

Our next exhibition will be in September 2018 at the 'Inspired by' Gallery, Danby. This is part of the North York Moors visitor centre. The title will be 'Threading through the moors' and we are all buzzing with ideas for work on this theme. Watch this space for updates!

Exhibition at The Atrium Gallery, Leeds

Our newest exhibition is now installed.

Atrium Gallery, St James' Hospital, Leeds
The Atrium Gallery is within the Bexley Wing of St James' Hospital. This large and airy space feels nothing like a hospital, but it is part of the largest oncology unit in Europe.
Despite the appearance given in the photo (we had to wait a while until there was no-one in shot) this space is the main reception area and is used by staff and patients alike. We had incredible interest from passers by as we were installing the works.
The exhibition will be up until July 29th.
Work is for sale, and 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the Yorkshire Cancer Centre
