'A Group Gathering' is a vehicle for bringing invited artists together to work on collaborative projects with a textile bent. Each year the project challenge and the group of artists involved changes- this exhibition showcases the first two of these- ‘Daphne’s Glove’ and ‘The Shirt Collar Project’. The project is curated and managed by artist Kathleen Murphy (Murgatroyd and Bean) and was initially based on creative relationships developed via social media: http://agroupgathering.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/gathering-group.html
