“Threads”, a new exhibition, which pushes the boundaries of traditional textile techniques into innovative and creative forms, opens at 6pm on Friday, September 3, at Tyto Regional Gallery. A group of fibre and textile artists, working in a variety of techniques, will showcase customary textile techniques and original creative styles.
The exhibition affords you a chance to explore a myriad of ways in which fibre can be exploited for its vast emotional and symbolic potential. It features intricate designs and vibrant pieces made from machine and hand embroidery, felting, knitting, and crochet, eco-dyeing, lino printing, basketry from natural and re-cycled materials, soft sculpture, shibori on silk, upcycling garments, and weaving.
“Threads has been a popular exhibition at Mission Arts, with five successful exhibitions in recent years. This year, we were offered a chance to exhibit in Tyto Regional Art Gallery in Ingham, in a much bigger display space, and the opportunity to work with fibre artists from the Hinchinbrook region.” Threads exhibition coordinator Sally Moroney stated.
“Each artwork brings a unique experience, you are welcome to ‘feel’ through your eyes, but, as tempting as it may be, please do not touch with your hands.”
This is an exhibition not to be missed. It proposes a dialogue around the artists’ shared focus on materiality and the tactility of fabric and changing of threads to fine art.
“Threads”, is one of the only regular fibre and textile events in North Queensland. Opening night is 6pm, Friday, September 3, with finger food provided and a cash bar. RSVP to Tyto Regional Gallery on 4776 4725 . It continues till Sunday, September 26. Everyone is welcome to meet the artists at a morning tea and enjoy a floor talk on Wednesday, September 8.
