Jenni Dutton is a multi media artist based in Somerset. Jenni is well known for her extraordinary portraits known as The Dementia Darnings, but this month at East Quay, she will be focusing her attentions on work linked to her activity as a Climate Activist @WeareWiveyXR
Jenni's handmade masks and cloaks have taken centre stage, along with banners, tote bags and signs, all with a very strong set of messages. In August 2022, visitors were invited to join her and take part in completing a new piece, using found plastic from the local beaches, as she also worked on her Oceans Crisis cloak.
It’s been the best outreach I could have imagined!
