’40 Years and Counting’ by Meghan Graydon Darby

’40 Years and Counting’ by Meghan Graydon Darby

Meghan Graydon Darby’s work celebrates the identity and culture of her hometown in County Durham. Her first solo exhibition ’40 Years and Counting’ comes after winning Manchester Craft & Design Centre’s 13th Annual MMU Graduate Solo Exhibition Award. Meghan has produced a collection of wooden sculptures and fabric wall hangings taking inspiration from her Granda’s garden – including rubble, utensils, and discarded machinery.

The pieces on display have been made especially for this show. “‘40 Years and Counting’ is a creative response to my Granda’s garden, a space that he put together around 1979 from gear he got from the demolished pit. This place is his own sanctuary, where he keeps an array of materials, tools and discarded matter.” – Meghan Graydon Darby.

Meghan won the award for her playful, colourful and illustrative work on her BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice degree at Manchester School of Art in 2018.

Free exhibition preview: Thursday 7 February, 6-8pm. Everyone welcome
