To mark Joan Eardley’s centenary in 2021, Dovecot has worked in partnership with the Artistâ€™s Estate to create a new tapestry interpreting Eardleyâ€™s painting July Fields, 1959 (from the Edinburgh City Art Centre Collection). The tapestry will be shown for the first time at The Scottish Gallery’s Joan Eardley Centenary exhibition (30 July – 28 August 2021) as part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2021. This stunning commission was woven haute-lisse using a high-warp loom at Dovecot Studios and offers a new way in which to closely study and engage with Eardleyâ€™s unique composition, palette and mark-making.
