Tracey Watson – Connie’s War  

  • 1 June – 21 July  

An exhibition featuring textiles, prints and ceramics based on the wartime experience of the artist’s grandmother Connie, who lived in Coventry during the Blitz. With contemporary images of flora and fauna and brightly coloured designs, this locally inspired exhibition takes inspiration from the bombing of Coventry and the ruins of the Cathedral.

The historical references and local touches make this a powerful show for anyone hoping to learn more about the war from a personal point of view.
