Amanda Richardson: Textile Wall Hangings – July 16 through August 3

The textile works of Amanda Richardson have earned accolades from clients worldwide. This show’s subject matter is inspired by the beautiful flowers and rocky cliffs from her home in Cornwall, UK. Additionally, it is infused with remembrances of the flowers from the San Juan Islands and her recent travels to Crete and Kazakhstan

These finely composed textile wall hangings, are created using custom dyed fabrics, finely cut into varying sizes, placed onto a backing sheet of fabric, and then fused into place. These stunning textiles, infused with varying degrees of textured cloth, create an artwork that delights the eyes and soul.

After a 20 – year hiatus from San Juan Island, Amanda is attending WaterWorks Gallery’s opening reception on Saturday, July 16th.

This is the 31st year of WaterWorks Gallery located in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island. It is a contemporary, light filled space that continues to evolve as a gallery dedicated to showing artists from the Islands, Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. The represented artists, painters, sculptors and jewelers reflect the area’s beauty, both conventional and unusual. That is the flavor of the Northwest and what makes WaterWorks Gallery the unique place it is.
