Exhibition, The Map Project

The Map Project: Where I live exhibition will be on show between 3 and 16 July, with the opening from 6-8pm on Thursday 6 July.
An assortment of artists from the region, the nation and the world explore what ‘home’ means in an extraordinary new exhibition opening at Newcastle’s Timeless Textiles Gallery in July. 
“We all have a connection to a place, a story or memory,” Gallery owner Anne Kempton said. “The Map Project: Where I live is a collaboration by textile artists on the meaning of the place they call home: the geography, culture, history and perceptions of being there.”
