News: Help Dovecot tell the story of Scottish weaver and pop artist Archie Brennan
Archie Brennan - Muhammad Ali 1973 - Current location unknown
Dovecot Studios have launched an Art Happens campaign to raise £20,000 to bring the story of Scottish weaver and pop artist Archie Brennan (1931-2019) to life in the first major exhibition of his work.
Archie began his 60-year weaving career at Dovecot Studios in his home city, Edinburgh. From Australia to Papua New Guinea, he inspired weavers all over the world and became the undisputed master of modern tapestry, as well a sharp and talented pop artist. Despite Archie’s huge influence in both the weaving and art world, there has never been a major exhibition of his work. With your help, Dovecot can change that.
Donate now and receive exclusive rewards including a tote bag, a weaving kit, a poster and sticker set designed by Beca Lipscombe of Atelier E.B, and even a tapestry class with Dovecot Master Weaver Naomi Robertson.
