Zoology

The 2014 E17 Art Trail is upon us! And very welcome it is too, after last year's hiatus. This year I am showing two embroideries as part of the Zoology exhibition at the wonderful little gallery and picture framers E17 Art House.

You might remember these two; a puffin I stitched for my parents' 50th birthdays (and is now finally framed, hooray!) and an ode on melancholyflowers with accompanying honey bee (that one's for sale).



There is a menagerie of talent and media on show; from cute to conceptual, wood engraving to soft sculpture.

Benevolent Mill matriarch Mo Morris shows some of my favourite works in the exhibition; adorably diddy, hand carved wood cuts.



I have a particular predilection for moths.


Bees are a popular subject at Zoology; this one makes good use of recycled materials, as well as being a bit monstrous.


I love the wry, knowing expression of this caged parrot.


This mouse spooked me a little; maybe it's something about its glassy stare? I wouldn't want to run into it in a dark alley!


One of these delightful animal alphabet prints by Build makes up the flyer for the exhibition; these were two of my favourites (who doesn't love mallards and narwhals?!)



These charming illustrations by Darren Hayman commemorate Walthamstow's recent past, and the lovable heroes of the Dog Track.



I told you I had a thing about moths (though I suspect this may be a butterfly), and the metamorphosis is melded perfectly.


This small but beautiful space is bursting with a zoo all its own, with a wide range of prices for art lovers and something to suit every taste whether you're buying or just travelling 'round the Trail. Don't miss it! The exhibition is on until the 28th June.
