Lotte Inch Gallery is bringing a burst of colour to York Theatre Royal this November.
The gallery is working with multi-media artist Matthew Miller to bring the installation Cloth and Colour to the foyer of York Theatre Royal from 13 to 30 November 2021.
Originally from York, Matthew has made his home in London – but now he’s returning to his roots.
The installation will feature a series of quilts that use bright, bold colours to create vibrant collages in cloth.
The textile pieces are inspired by the work of the quilters of Gee’s Bend, Alabama – whose quilts are seen as among the most important African-American contributions to the history of art within the United States.
After a difficult 2020, gallery owner Lotte Inch made the decision to close her Bootham premises in June earlier this year – but that hasn’t stopped Lotte to continue her commitment to the city’s art scene.
Cloth and Colour will be the first of Lotte Inch Gallery’s ‘beyond the gallery walls’ projects.
The installation will run until 30 November, and is available to visit during theatre opening times.
