‘Thread Connections’ was a collaboration with 2 fellow textile artists from Perth – Marilyn Farrow and Jennie Abbott. So, with months of planning and creating, it all came together in a successful exhibition at the Old Bakery, Maylands, Perth. While this venue no longer exists, because of its size, it was a perfect place for us at the time.
Carl Altmann opened the exhibition with some high praise, but also a lot of hilarity! He has been involved in Art Education, Design, Visual Literacy, Drawing, Painting and Textiles for many years as well as judging. In addition, his own artworks have been exhibited both in Australia and internationally.
My thread connections
As a result as many hours of happy creating, 14 pieces came to fruition. Most are shown below with links to more information.
The gallery above contains some candid shots of the opening night and general layout of my exhibits in the gallery.
