Exhibition Life stitching

Life, Stitching

24 Aug 2012 - 11 Sep 2012
Life, Stitching; a group exhibition curated by Linda Marie Walker, shown at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, University of South Australia (Adelaide) as well as Riddoch Art Gallery (Mount Gambier, SA).

This exhibition brings together art from three South Australian textile artists with connections to the south east, alongside work by women from the 'Beachport Coastal Quilters’. “Life, Stitching includes quilting, patchwork, embroidery, knitting, and crocheting; these skills have been developed during each woman's lifetime for different reasons and intentions. The work is personal, geographic and social, relating to family, landscape, climate and industry. The different practices of these country and city women are complementary, evoking complex relationships to materials.”
