Val Griffith-Jones: Wicked Stitch
Val Griffith-Jones is a multi-media artist whose work is rich with colour, humour, clever observation and narrative. She has been telling stories and responding to life events by making two and three dimensional art since the 1980s when her major public art gallery exhibition, Stuffed Stuff, broke visitor records. Val lives and works in Picton. Wicked Stitch is a survey exhibition of a selection of her work from the 1980s to now, and it will tour to other public art galleries after its showing in Marlborough.
