Joyce Petschek @ The American Museum in Britain
18 March 2017 - 29 October 2017
American-born Joyce Petschek has had a life-long passion for Bargello needlework, a beautiful flame-stitch pattern that has an extensive history. After many years creating designs for a commercial market, Joyce closed her business and began to work on her own unique compositions that allowed her to fully explore the creative potential of her ideas. The resulting canon of work is both colourful and inspiring. Her designs have moved away from the constraints of formal Bargello work as Joyce has reinvented the genre and ‘Broken the Pattern’.
