Art: Mary Drown

On my adventures around Bristol this weekend I decided to pop into the Royal West of England Academy of Art and currently showing in the Long Gallery is a free exhibition of silk screen prints by Mary Drown. The seductive silk canvasses are beautiful and delicate, and treat vivid colours with subtlety and control.

Mary Drown describes herself as having always felt the need to create things, and she worked with textiles from a young age. Her background in dressmaking and soft furnishings is reflected in these sumptuous canvasses – the silk screens would make beautiful fabrics for clothing, I think.
