Jann Haworth - Exhibit in UK

Jann Haworth is more of a "soft-sculpture" artist than an embroidery artist but let's make sure you know about her current show going on in England:

Hollywood-born artist Jann Haworth (b. 1942) is among the few women associated with the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. Her sewn cloth soft sculptures refer to typically American Pop themes such as fast food, film stars, cheerleaders, cowboys and comics, as well as to her experiences of living in England during a period of cultural transformation. Developed in partnership with the artist, this exhibition is the first UK solo show of Haworth’s work in a public gallery since 1972.
