Sew:Together - The Legacy of Marion Stewart
This exhibition presents a tribute to textile artist and designer Marion Stewart ne Gracie, 1931-2017, who worked for many years at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, where she taught embroidery and stitched textile design to generations of students. Marion had a formidable work ethic and always pushed her students to achieve at the highest levels. She was also renowned for her quick wit and sense of humour. Above all, she was an inspirational teacher and an important role model for professional married women. She encouraged the formation of the influential textile group Embryo in 1980, and many of her students have gone on to forge successful careers in art, design and education. The exhibition features work by Marion and by many of the students who were inspired by her. It has been curated by Frances Justice and Sheila Mortlock in association with the University of Dundee Museum Services.
Monday to Friday 9.30am-7pm & Saturday 1-5pm.
