My craft group are holding an exhibition in the Perc Tucker Gallery from now until 17th October. If your in the north please come and visit and see some really amazing work. I want to thank publicly all the lovely ladies who have put this together especially my friend Barb, who helped me with the finishing of my totem - my lady on the swing.
FIBRES AND FABRICS ASSOCIATION INC.
17 September until 17 October
A lot has changed since 1975. This was the year the Fibres and Fabrics Assoc. Inc was formed after an advertisement was placed in the Townsville Bulletin by June Oliver calling a meeting to gauge the interest in fibre arts in Townsville. Having been rejected after entering an art exhibition with her craft skills, Oliver sought out like-minded people with similarly impressive skills. About 20 people attended this first meeting at the Townsville Arts Centre on March 19, and it was decided to form a fibre craft group.
This exhibition, titled Totems – a symbolic representation of a group showcases the variety of textile arts that are currently being practised in Australia. The theme for the exhibition was chosen to encourage members to look into their ideas, feelings and personal circumstances and reflect them in their work.
