The Alpaca Collective Exhibition 2021
Farm to Fashion Isolation Creations
After the initial disappointment of having our June 2020 exhibition in The Kingaroy Art Gallery cancelled, due to Covid, I discovered that the lockdown and isolation was an adventure in creative discovery. The slower pace enabled me to take the time to try new textures and techniques. I believe that our 2021 collection will be our best yet. Each of us has created some wonderful pieces, and we can’t wait to unveil our new exhibition.
(Julia & Kirsten Jeffery, Sam Bowler & Myrie Cobby)
Red Earth Ruggers & Crafters
What’s Old is New Again
We will be displaying various forms of Rug making, Knitting and Crochet. We will have a display of Handiwork from past generations.
We will be demonstrating our skills, and have a work in progress for people to add to, as part of an ongoing project. We will also be making things for, and accepting donations for the Knitting for Brisbane’s Needy again this year.
(Judy Brooks, Lynn England, Val Lowes & Robin Kerston)
Ceramics and sculptural forms large and small form the basis of “Frozen Garden.” While clay is the dominant medium, wire, stone and textile will all feature in the exhibition. Inspired by my own garden, these forms would highlight various areas of any garden. The exhibition will feature a range of locally made, one-off sculptural forms not seen before, that will appeal to many people and attract the discerning buyer who is looking for something away from the ordinary.
“The Road Untravelled”
The Artists of Tangled Threads are knitted together by their love of all things textiles as well as their passion for creative expression, experiment and the development of their skills and knowledge in using this medium. At Tangled Threads, we meld into dynamic collective producing works of art that use textiles in all their varied forms.
(Marion Lees, Barbara Jenkins, Jane Walduck, Sue Clark, Jan Scudamore, Kerry Dahms, Ruth Wagner, Carol Weekes, Michelle Seiler, Kay Joyce)
We are a small group of like-minded textile artists who have a passion for creating original art. “Aide Memoire” sets out to illustrate in textile art how our memories can be stimulated into remembering aspects of our life’s journey, then communicating them in a visual form to an audience.
(Jan Scudamore, Barbara Jenkins, Marion Lees)
