Exhibition: The Italian Eye

You're invited to:
Exhibition brings The Italian Eye to Newcastle

A new exhibition by Brisbane-based fibre artist Sylvia Watt, opening at Newcastle’s Timeless Textiles Gallery in October, brings to life the colours and textures of Italy.

Sylvia Watt returns to Newcastle for her third exhibition, The Italian Eye, which was inspired by a three-month sojourn in Italy.

Speaking of her exhibition Sylvia says she was first drawn to the colour and texture of the walls. "What a feast for the eye! Colour, texture and form have always been central to my work and these elements draw me in. The body of work for this show comes from the walls, which speak to me."

Assemblage workshop with Sylvia Watt
This two day workshop will be held with fibre artist Sylvia Watt. Taking a simple image (organic form or symbol etc) and using different techniques to reproduce that image, one piece will be produced out of a process of deconstruction and reconstruction of these images. You will explore the basic principles of colour and design. Sylvia provides much encouragement and mentoring in assisting you in pushing your own boundaries of making art

Participants do not require any formal arts background – just a desire to explore and to have faith in the process.

Please bring found objects, vintage cloth, hand made felt, beads, felting wool & lace. No machines required.

Dates: 24-25 October 2015 (9.30 am – 4.30 pm)

Cost: $250 (GST inclusive) including a delicious morning tea and lunch

Venue: Timeless Textiles Gallery, 90 Hunter st Newcastle East
