Stitched Up' exhibition
a partnership between THE LOCK-UP AND TIMELESS TEXTILES GALLERY 
24 JUNE - 30 JULY 2017
OPENING 6PM FRIDAY 23 JUNE
 
Featuring 25 contemporary international and national fibre artists, STITICHED UP gives a voice to the 193 girls who attended The Newcastle Industrial School, in the 150th-year since its opening. 
Between 1867 and 1891, one hundred and ninety-three girls aged from two and a half to 18 years attended the Newcastle Industrial School. These girls came from backgrounds of poverty, cruelty and discrimination endemic in immigrant and marginalised communities during Australia’s ‘Gold Rush’ era. Many became notorious in the locality for a series of daring escapes which led to repeated incarcerations. Some of the girls went on to gain national infamy.
Curated by Anne Kempton (Creative Director Timeless Textiles Gallery) and fibre artist Wilma Simmons,25 internationally renowned fibre artists from Canada, Hungary, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Denmark and nationally across Australia have contributed the project. The pieces include a large quilt as a comforter; dolls to compensate for lost childhood; cloth books for story-telling; shadow threadworks; and visual poetry.
