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 woven tapestry/weaving, mainly archetypal portraits.
Since 1988, in order to make her art more widely accesssible, and to encourage others into creative activity, she has concentrated on needlepoint, (over one hundred and thirty designs) 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 was another succesful joint show with Kaffe Fassett at the Victoria Gallery that once more had record breaking visitor numbers
In 2019-2020 for five months, Candace had a highly acclaimed solo exhibition at the Holburne Museum in Bath, overlapping at the end with Grayson Perry. Jeremy Cooper
