Mary Gillett and Tessa Asquith at the Craft Centre and Design Gallery, Leeds

Atmospheric prints by renowned printmakers Tessa Asquith-Lamb and Mary Gillett are displayed together in this group exhibition of etchings, collagraphs and mono prints.  Tessa’s etchings reflect her love of stories and storytelling.  Each image she creates is assembled from drawings in her sketchbooks of beautiful things founds in museums, remembered moments, carefully observed self portraits, and objects from her collection of Victoriana and childhood treasures.  Mary’s images, many of Dartmoor and the North Cornwall coastline are contemplations on how our surroundings can reflect our histories, our moods and our thoughts.
