Elizabeth Smith had been recommended to us by a number of people so I eagerly anticipated her talk called “Fabric of Life”. I was not disappointed. The first thing was the range of items that Elizabeth was able to display. Panels, hangings, Christmas decorations, installations and a huge floor cushion. Next was the variety of colour and texture. Look at the photos to get a taste of what we saw. Elizabeth had a number of differing inspirations for her work, frequently, like many of us , going back to the natural form but then applying a contemporary slant. Much of her work had been done in cooperation with community groups. some of it is installed in public buildings.
Elizabeth firstname.lastname@example.org will be exhibiting at Touchstones in Rochdale from May1st this year. I would recommend a visit.
