Candace Bahouth's work is like her: exuberant, freely connecting, bright on sight, deep on examination, emotional and alive.
A graduate in Fine Art from Syracuse University, Bahouth settled into a Methodist Chapel in rural Somerset , where for many years she developed her unique facility for painterly and sculptural expression in weaving.
Since 1988, in order to make her art more widely accesssible, and to encourage others into creative activity, she has concentrated on needlepoint, over eighty designs for which have been published.
Between these two creative concerns, Bahouth has explored her interest in mosaics, using found material from nature as well as fragments of china.
In the summer of 1996, a highly praised retrospective exhibition was mounted by the American Museum in Bath, the best attended single artist show in the museum's history.
In 2008 a joint exhibition with Kaffe Fassett at the Victoria Gallery in Bath was also a best attended show. In 2018 there will be another joint show with Kaffe Fassett at the Victoria Gallery from May to September. Jeremy Cooper
