Two exhibitions at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen have a similar hue.
Tracing the Blueprint – which opens on Friday, February 25 – presents a social and visual history of indigo-print textiles though pictures, words and cloth samples. The journey travels from the Hapsburg Empire into Hungarian village life, and from Europe, via colonisation and assimilation, to Xhosa and other peoples of Southern Africa.
Then the Blue exhibition will look at work in different media exploring how the colour is used by contemporary artists.
Tracing the Blue Print runs from Friday, February 24 to Monday, March 26. And Blue is from Saturday, March 10 to Sunday, April 22. For opening times, check the Devon Guild of Craftsmen site.
