“Ragtime” exhibition by Natural Progression Textile Group, June 2021

Natural Progression present “Ragtime”An Exhibition and Sale of Contemporary Textile Art by Natural Progression Textile Group.

In this exhibition we have researched and been inspired by all aspects of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods.

The Art Nouveau period was romantic. ethereal and based on all aspects of nature, followed a few years later by the contrast of Art Deco with its cleaner lines and decadent lifestyle.

Each piece of work has been designed by the artist and is their own interpretation of what these two different approaches to style and art personally mean to them.

We hope our work gives you a taste of how fashion and artforms defined both eras and transports you back to a time of fun and frivolity.
