Cumbrian Blue(s) artwork will be shown as part of the touring exhibition Craft and Conflict.
In the year of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, Highlights Contemporary Craft tour addresses the pertinent theme of conflict, which affects our communities locally, nationally and internationally.  In rural environments issues of conservation versus agriculture and industry, of rewilding versus farming are often in the news. In the global environment the devastating effect of war on individuals and communities and culture and the subsequent refugee crisis; and finally, conflicts in relationships and families, personal and professional.
