Green Surround

Continuing with the recent theme of art created from textiles, I spotted this attractive work hanging in Wigan library during a recent visit. It was designed by the textile artist Elizabeth Smith and created in conjunction by the local Daisy Chain Stitchers group.

The work celebrates both the natural and built environments of the borough. The design incorporates plant like elements and features from buildings in the town centre.

It's tucked away on the wall at the back of the library and probaly goes unoticed by most visitors. I think it deserves to be given much greater prominence.
