I am delighted to announce the imminent opening of my first solo retrospective show called:
PTOLEMY MANN – THE ARCHITECTURE OF CLOTH, COLOUR AND SPACE
It opens on the 18th November 2011 at the Ruthin Craft Centre http://www.ruthincraftcentre.org.uk where it will be untill the 15th January 2012. It will then tour to three other venus throughout 2012 finishing up at Gloucester cathedral where it will be presented in conjunction with Ruthin and The Stroud International Textile Festival http://www.stroudinternationaltextiles.org.uk You will be hearing a lot about the show over the next few weeks (indeed the next year!) as preparations are completed for opening night.
Kicking off the celebrations is a wonderful article in this months Crafts magazine http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk/crafts-magazine written by Pamela Buxton. As highlighted in the article:
“It’s rare to see textile art, textile design and architectural work all in one context…”
