To mark Joan Eardley’s centenary in 2021, Dovecot has worked in partnership with the Artist’s Estate to create a new tapestry interpreting Eardley’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 Eardley’s unique composition, palette and mark-making.
