Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Morris, W, Russell, G, Mariet, E and Parry-Williams, T
Abstract: William Morris (1834-1896) described the Cotswolds as ‘a heaven on earth’. This exhibition at the Gordon Russell Design Museum, explores the abundant inspiration the area has provided for Morris and many other textile designers. As well as drawing on the Museum’s own collection, in particular the work of Marian Pepler (1904-1997), the show will also include loans from other Museums and private collectors, including an early piece by William Morris. The exhibition will feature the work of other 20th Century textile designers including: Ethel Mariet (1872-1952) who worked at Broad Campden, Phyllis Barron (1890-1964) and Dorothy Larcher (1884-1952) who lived and worked at Painswick, and Tibor Reich (1916-1996) who produced all-wool coverings for Gordon Russell Ltd. To complement these early interpretations of the Cotswolds influence, the exhibition will display work by garment designer/maker Dorothy Reglar and current Gloucestershire Guild members Tim Parry-Williams, Liz Lippiatt, Sarah Beadsmore and the team of Rebecca Aird and Peter Thwaites at Rapture & Wright
