An exhibition of small format tapestries, woven by Scottish Regional Members of the British Tapestry Group. As the exhibition is being held at the Verdant Works, Dundee, many of the tapestries have links to the city.
BTG exists to promote woven tapestry as a mainstream art form, to encourage an appreciation of its historical links and to ensure its future as a contemporary and ongoing means of expressing creative art. We are keen to provide opportunities for our members’ professional development and for collectors, students and the public at large to have an opportunity to view and appreciate quality tapestry weaving in all its variety. As well as meeting as one group we are developing a network of local groups that meet for mutual support, tapestry talk and to hold local exhibitions. We have a successful record of both local and national exhibitions on which we continue to build.
