Sculptural Felt International
continues its exhibition period in
Wollongong Art Gallery
until 29th November,
before heading back to The Netherlands.
Sculptural Felt International brings together the work of twelve artists from six different countries.
The artists in the exhibition are:
Stephanie Metz, Keiko Mizoguchi, Chung-Im Kim, Kitty Korver, Anita Larkin, Marjolein Dallinga, Meiri Ishida, Jantine Koppert, Rebecca Howdeshell, Hiroko Sato-Pijanowski, Sara Owens, and Jenne Giles.
Each artist in some way crosses the boundaries between felt and other disciplines, techniques, materials or concepts, thereby bringing felt into a very contemporary and innovative context. They are exploring how a different discipline’s tools, skills, and way of thinking can be applied to the medium of felt.
The intriguing works in the exhibition range from large architectural forms in felt, to tiny sculptural forms within a ring. This is the first time an international exhibition such as this has come to Australia.
On 18th September I gave an artists talk and walk through the exhibition for the public and many members of The Canberra Feltmakers travelled down on a bus to see it. With the 24 of them it made for quite a turn out.
It had me thinking that maybe members of ATASDA and ATASDA south , would maybe like me to do the same for them one day during the exhibition???
If you think your group would like to visit this international textile exhibition, and would like me to meet up with the group for an artists talk about my work and the works in the show by other feltmakers, please get in touch with possible dates for your group.
Note gallery times are closed Mondays,
Open Tues-Fri 10am-5pm
There is also a stunning catalogue for this exhibition with full colour photos of all of the almost 55 works.
Catalogues are for sale at the gallery for $18.
