Ruth Fettis & Dress by Jo Palmer

Ruth Fettis brings to the Shipley Gallery a truly unique interpretation of the medium of print, combing processes with a collaborative approach to creativity.

Dress of Deep Sorrow , Dress made by Jo Palmer, a wool jacket and taffeta netting accompanied by mixed media postcards by Ruth Fettis.  The piece of work is inspired by a tin once owned by Ruth’s grandmother, who lived in Amble.  The contents includes old photo’s, embroidered postcards (typical of this period) love letters sent from the trenches.  The artist brings these items together in s story exploring war, loss, the sea and love letters.
