Market Street and Cheapside, Lancaster
Free and Open to the Public

Lancaster’s historic squares and streets become the backdrop for original work commissioned through the Lancaster Chinese Arts Festival’s Artists Residency programme.

Gale Chen’s work responds to the unique spaces of Lancaster’s city centre and central to her work is her exploration of both British and Chinese traditions of storytelling through fabric and embroidery.

Lancaster’s history is retold through events that have shaped the city and its people over the centuries on Chinese style embroidered plaques and decorative roses adorning the tree lined avenue as Gale Chen’s contribution to the festival.
