Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios October & November 2023 Exhibitions Strange Notions and Sydney Printmakers

    In October/November 2023, Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios will present two new exhibitions,  Strange Notions – untethered fibre artists and Sydney Printmakers

    Strange Notions – untethered fibre artists

    The exhibition runs from 11 October – 4 November 2023.

    Artists include:  Rebecca Brady, Jennifer Corkish, Lorna Crane, Pam de Groot, Jennifer Florey, Desdemona Foster, Cathie Griffith, Ellen Howell, Catherine Lees, Denise Lithgow, Brenda Livermore, Helen MacRitchie, Mandy McAlister, Robyn McGrath, Rhonda Nelson, Samantha Tannous, Kirry Toose, Judith Wilson, Elaine Witton.

     ‘Strange Notions’, is a group exhibition by 19 fibre and textile artists known collectively as ‘untethered fibre artists inc’.

    They aim to extend the viewers’ vocabulary of textile and fibre art and provoke personal thoughts and journeys through contemporary, innovative, and expertly crafted works.

    ‘Strange Notions’ present representational and conceptual works of fibre art that delve into rich resources, from the tangible to the non-tangible, the personal to the communal, yielding critical reflections and thoughtful projections.

    Each artwork is a celebration of differences in the combination of fibres and techniques, rephrasing assumptions and reflecting the diversity in approach to artmaking, through the vocabulary of fibre.
