Coinciding with Dementia Action Week, 17th - 23rd May, we welcome a temporary exhibition by artist Jenni Dutton to Hereford Cathedral. The display will show selected artworks from Dutton's Dementia Darnings series of intimate and intricate tapestries which explore her mother's journey with Dementia after being diagnosed in 2011.

"The series grew as my mother went into a nursing home. As I relinquished her care to other people, I became an observer. I continued to make the work which had now become about universal ageing, about time passing and about documenting her decline due to the development of dementia." 

The exhibition has travelled extensively in the U.K., Europe, and a selection reached China in 2018. The complete series of artworks and more information on Jenni Dutton can be viewed here

The exhibition will be on display in the North Transept from 17th May - 7th June, with a small selection of postcards available to purchase in the Cathedral Shop. 

The exhibition will be available to view during normal cathedral opening hours.
