A HUGE thank you to Maria Harryman

Posted on 7th May, 2012

It was a great pleasure to welcome Maria Harryman to be our selecting judge for Combe Down Art Group at the last exhibition at Claverton Down Community Hall. Maria is an extremely competent and creative artist in her own right, working with design, print and colour, using a range of materials including fabrics and quilts.


Maria is pictured (right)  congratulating our Exhibition Manager, Jan Stapleton (left) for her Best Painting in the Abstract Art Category on the day.  Jan was especially pleased to be awarded the prize for this category because her husband had purposely gone to get the picture framed in time for the exhibition and we are very glad he did!


Maria is part of Cloth Road Arts week and is currently exhibiting her amazing work at the Trowbrige Museum in the heart of the town. The exhibition features a new body of textiles created in response to 'fragments' of broken ceramics and a 19th century patchwork from the Museums' archive collection.


Maria has taken her inspiration from the colours and achitectural designs in the area to create unique cloth and contemporary quilts. It is most definately worth a visit to see her stunning work and perhaps to buy some beautifully hand crafted cards that she has for sale.
