‘Bridging the Gap’ is an exhibition of textile art by Helen Winthorpe Kendrick at Crown Street Gallery, Darlington DL1 1ND, from 2nd November 2019 to 9th January 2020.

The expression ‘Bridging the gap’ is frequently used in many different circumstances including bridging the gap between: standards and achievement; the poor and the rich; the minorities and the mass population; different cultures; one hill and another; time; earth to the planets beyond.

There is seldom one answer that suits all. This exhibition looks at the many and diverse ways in which bridges can be built, both physically and metaphorically.
