Commemorative Exhibition:
'Trees & Flowers'

A special collaborative exhibition by ArtWorks members in celebration of the life of artist Jane Dimsey (1939 - 2017)

Exhibition: 11 November - 08 December 2017
Preview: 4.00 - 6.00pm Saturday 11 November 2017

Jane Dimsey trained at Birmingham College of Art & Crafts in the late 1950's, specialising in Textile Design. After completing her Art Teacher's Diploma (ATD), she taught for 20 years at grammar schools in Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield. For a time, she was Head of Art, eventually going on to run a newly created Textile Design Department, where she was influential in creating the new curriculum for Textiles in secondary schools.

Her passion for teaching was not limited to schools, as over the years she has provided creative opportunities for many groups including the Townswomens' Guild, the Scouting Association and Birmingham Settlement. Jane also used her skills to support other activities such as scenery & costumes for drama productions and hugely successful carnival floats.

After retiring, Jane developed a new style of working in silk painting, quilting and embroidery, using natural forms as her principal inspiration. She was one of the original exhibitors when ArtWorks Aberdyf was created, and has had several further exhibitions with ArtWorks.

Jane passed away peacefully on Sunday 14th May 2017 after a long illness.
