NEWLY COMMISSIONED TAPESTRY OF JULY FIELDS
To mark The Scottish Gallery’s exhibition, the Artist’s Estate and the gallery are working in partnership with Dovecot Studios to create a new commission in honour of Joan Eardley. This will be created over a period of six months before being unveiled as part of the exhibition. The tapestry will interpret Eardley’s painting July Fields, 1959 (City Art Centre Collection), and will be woven haute-lisse using a high-warp loom in the world-renowned Dovecot Studios. This commission offers a new way in which to closely study and engage with Eardley’s unique composition, palette and mark-making.
