Vicki Cornish Artist in Residence Exhibition

Inspired by an extensive historical collection of textiles and soft furnishings, as well as Grossmann and Brough Houses and their gardens, Artist in Residence, Vicki Cornish, will display her site-specific works for you to view.

Newcastle-based Artist in Residence, Vicki Cornish, will undertake her three month residency in the Fibre Makers’ Space at Brough House.

Vicki has worked  in collaboration with the Friends of Grossmann & Brough Houses to interweave the threads of stories and objects which make the two unique National Trust properties such an important asset for both the local and broader community.

Inspired directly by the house, garden and collection, the work is a tribute to the generosity of the artist in sharing ideas and techniques at the Open Studio and workshops with the community, whilst involved in creating the objects for the exhibition.

Visit to see Vicki’s exceptional artworks for yourself.
