Thread Connections Exhibition 2011

‘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.
