EXHIBITION TAUPŌ MUSEUM
August 17 - September 23, 2019
Fibres Unlimited is a collective which first met in 1996 and was the inspiration of the late Joan Bright and Sandy Morrison who called together a group of like-minded individuals with the aim of encouraging each other in their creativity.
The repurposing of fibre is the theme of the Small Worlds exhibition. We cannot escape the fact that our world is small and resources are limited, each artist uses her favoured fibre to share her view on the theme.
Small Worlds will be the 11th exhibition by the group who endeavour to hold an exhibition every two years. The membership has changed over time but the group stays true to the original aims laid down at the first meeting.
The contributing artists are Aletta Lamprecht, Adri Shaw, Barbara McQuarrie, Coralie Skinner, Leigh Motion, Morag Scott, Raewyn Ireland, and Ylva Maxwell who all exhibit locally and nationally.
Stitch in - Saturday September 21 from 11am
