Threads Throughout Creation Exhibition: Jacqui Parkinson Textiles

22 February - 30 April

Jacqui Parkinson returns to the Cathedral to showcase her stunning exhibition, ‘Threads Throughout Creation’. The exhibition includes 12 large vibrant panels telling the Genesis story. Her previous exhibition Threads Throughout Revelation was exhibited at 14 other cathedrals across the UK between 2016-2018 and viewed by up to 1 million people! Here’s what The Very Revd Professor Dr Gordon McPhate – Dean of Chester had to say about her previous exhibition:

“You can’t sum up Revelation neatly. That’s why this exhibition is so powerful. It isn’t a neat and tidy story, and Jacqui Parkinson has not tried to make it so. The artwork is vibrant and striking, and it’s intentionally not neat and tidy, as witnessed for example by frayed edges and unevenness that are a feature throughout. Her re-envisioning invites the viewer to share the visions, to contemplate the mystery, and to build up their own bigger picture. I was particularly impressed with the novelty and explanatory effectiveness of the artwork.”

This is the next chapter in the story and one not to be missed! No booking required.
