AN exhibition created specifically for The Bowes Museum’s award-winning Fashion and Textile Gallery opens on Saturday (February 16).

It is also the first showing of Material Remains, a new body of work by France-based artist Diana Winkfield.

Organisers say the exhibition will appeal in particular to those with an interest in historic and vintage clothing.

It includes paintings, drawings and installations made from clothing the artist uncovered while refurbishing her farmhouse.

Diana Winkfield studied drawing, painting and printmaking under Elizabeth Blackadder at Edinburgh College of Art, and History of Art under David Talbot-Rice at Edinburgh University during the 1960s before going on to enjoy a successful career as a painter.

Curated by Annabel Talbot, the exhibition continues until June 2.
