Sarah Terry exhibits latest work at London Luton Airport
Textile practitioner Sarah Terry of Guerilla Embroidery is the latest artist to exhibit her new work at London Luton’s Gateway Gallery. The exhibition will include famous works previously exhibited in the USA, Australia, and Europe, including Tate Britain and will be on display until July 2011.
Her latest collection experiments with the meaning of textiles as a communication medium by lending new life to old and discarded scraps and clothing, which give meaning to human society and cultures.
Commenting on the exhibition, Sarah Terry said ‘Working mostly with hand embroidery literally allows me time to meditate upon those stories which are woven into the materials I choose. I am faithful to the tradition of embroidery but am passionate about making it accessible to modern society, and I hope that those who come to see my collection will enjoy it’.
Sian Pearce, Community Relations Executive at London Luton Airport said: ‘London Luton Airport is pleased that Sarah has chosen us to showcase her fantastic collection, which we know that our passengers and the wider public will enjoy viewing’.

The Gateway Gallery has been delivered in partnership with the Luton Cultural Services Trust, with a view to creating exposure for local artists within the Airport arrivals area, as well as giving Airport passengers greater access to local artistic talent.
