Diversion April 4-28
Opening night: Wednesday 4 April 6 -8pm
Basketry NSW Incorporated are a group for basket enthusiasts, both makers and collectors, based in New South Wales, Australia.
Their aim is to promote appreciation of baskets, keep traditional basketry skills alive, and explore new forms of artistic expression using basket making techniques. Their members are interested in natural fibres and a wide variety of other materials, and make work ranging from functional vessels to sculptural forms
Diversion is the latest exhibition by Basketry NSW INC. From the Latin divertere, meaning ‘turn aside’, diversion has several meanings in modern English. A diversion can be a means of turning something aside from its course, departing from the usual route, or reallocating something for a different purpose.
In this exhibition, Basketry NSW members present striking and whimsical fibre works in response to the theme of diversion.
