Rachel Ainley Textiles @ The Beetroot Tree

Textile artist Rachel Ainley has a selection of her larger textiles on show as part of 'Rooms' exhibition at the Beetroot Tree Gallery, Draycott, Derbyshire.

The exhibition opens this Saturday 17th September and runs until 30th October 2011.

There is no preview as such but the gallery are running an event called 'Tea Party' which will be their equivalent to a preview evening. Rachel will be at that event alongside the other artists exhibiting.

If you haven't already been to the Beetroot Tree gallery it's really worth a visit. Not only does it have a gallery but it also has a lovely wholesome cafe, art shop, craft shop, workshop space, an outdoor courtyard and garden with chickens!
