  • Completing the Look: 300 Years of Fashion Accessories

    Saturday, January 28, 2017 - 10:00am to Sunday, July 30, 2017 - 10:00am

    Open Tues - Sat, 10am - 5pm

    Sun and Bank Holidays, 2 - 5pm

    (Closing 4:30pm Jan - Feb)

    For the past three centuries, fashion has been affected by politics, social change and popular culture. Both men and women have used what they wear to indicate their status, comply with social expectations, attract or please a partner, or send a message about their own individuality.

    Completing the Look: 300 Years of Fashion Accessories will examine how accessories fit into this. Featuring beautiful accessories dating from as early as 1720 up to the end of the 1970s, the exhibition will explore the reasons behind changes in fashion and what we can discover about the lives of people through what they chose to wear.

    See Georgian heelless dancing shoes, Victorian bonnets, Edwardian fans,1920s beaded bags, 1950s fur stoles and 1960s headscarves. Discover the secret language of fans, the reaction to the very first top hat and the impact teenagers had on 20th century fashion.

    5 Decades of Batik Painting - an exhibition by Batik artist, Noel Dyrenforth:

    "As part of the emerging counter-culture of the early 1960's I was eagerly seeking an alternative to the conventional art processes.  I found it in Batik.  Batik had little or no artistic legacy in the West, which liberated me from the contraints of content, style and practice.  Equally I found in Batik a means to resolve the historic dichotomy of art versus craft.  Since those heady days of discovery my passion has continued to infuse my creativity.  The spirt or the work is underpinned by the disipline of the essential technique.  Integrity and sensibilities are constantly being reappraised to enrich the expression."

    "I have never been complacent about Batik.  I constantly explore it for my own intuitive, creative ends; I interrogate its methods, concepts and challenges.  Rules are broken, re-defined; risks are taken.

    The recurring themes in my work are about the cutting forces in society - I am aware that we live in an increasingly fractuous society.  The system is encroaching upon our liberties, undermining our democracy day by day without us realising it."

    "Creating art out of hot wax and liquid colour into cloth, otherwise known as Batik, presents a challenge.  Yet, Noel Dyrenforth, a leading internationally known artist in this medium, has produced some of the most innovativeand skilled work over the last four decades.  His inspired work and teaching pioneered a fresh appraisal of this 2000 year old textile tradition."

    Rudolph G. Smead - curator, publisher and batik collector.
