The artist Miriam McConnon has documented and displayed her preliminary ideas for the public installation in a series of drawings in charcoal, colouring pencil and pastel. Here is offered a rare glimpse into the artist’s practice and thought process surrounding the central theme of the Lost Lace project.
At the opening of this exhibition we will have the opportunity to hear from the artist herself, as well as experience Jessica Traynor reading her poems commissioned to honour those things we have lost during the Pandemic – people, skills, art, connection.
