Newcastle Art Gallery. 26 November 2016 – 5 February 2017

HOLDING: Contemporary Fibre Art brings the creative process of the fibre art medium to life in the Hunter region. The exhibition brings together fibre artists from Austria, Australia, Canada, Hungary, the Netherlands, Spain and the USA and features small and intricate 3D artworks alongside larger scale pieces.

The works explore ideas of containment, ownership and the notion of ‘holding’, creating a rich visual experience in the gallery.

Curated by Anne Kempton (Gallerist, Timeless Textiles).

Ilka will also be in Newcastle in May to give a 3 day vessel workshop at Timeless Textiles.
