    Posted on 10 Sep 2013 by Dorothy Wightman | 0 comments

    We are delighted to announce another new exhibition at Dorothy Wightman interiors, which will be adorning the gallery from September 14th to November 1st 2013. 

    The exhibition is entitled ‘Weaving magic in willow, wool and wood’ and showcases the work of three talented designers:

    Lizzie Farey

    Lizzie Farey was born in Singapore, but studied in colleges of Art in the UK and now lives in Scotland. Her work is recognised in many commissions and awards. She has a fascination with living things and natural form. Willow has become a medium for an interaction with nature that is deeply personal. Using willow, birch, heather, bog myrtle and many other local woods her work ranges from traditional to abstract forms.

    Amanda Gizzi

    Scottish born she studied at the Edinburgh College of Art where she says tapestry chose her and she finds it the most rewarding work. The flat areas of colour and the intensity of tapestry allows for a strong and powerful vehicle of expression. Her work is influenced greatly by her Italian background and family in Glasgow. Preparing and sitting down for family meals, working together are all reflected in the work creating a wonderful visual narrative. Her work is much in demand for exhibitions including those at the Royal Scottish Academy.

    Flora Vagi

    Born in Hungary she still lives there and has a European reputation for producing highly original and desirable work. She says of her jewellery that she makes objects that are intimate and meaningful to the people who wear them- “jewellery which not only adorns, but “talks” or sometimes “whispers”.

    We hope you can join us for this inspiring exhibition.
