19th May – 2nd Sep 2018
Internationally renowned colour expert and fabric designer Kaffe Fassett makes a welcome return to Bath. He has been associated with the city since the 1960s when he moved to England from San Francisco.
Inspired by flowers all his life, Fassett will demonstrate his full creative flair in this stunning new exhibition. With a bespoke dazzling colour scheme to match, the installation will transform the Gallery using 40 of his vibrant coloured quilts and needlepoints.
The show will also feature colourful mosaiced island gardens, benches, totems, mirror frames, shoes, flower encrusted candlesticks and a chandelier by one of Fassett’s long-term collaborators, fellow American Candace Bahouth, who is based in Somerset. Many of these works are on a large scale and extend the floral theme into three dimensions.
