Threads of Our Communities Travels to the Deni Ute Muster, Balranald, and ARTLANDS DUBBO30.09.2016
South West Arts and West Darling Arts are celebrating fibre art inspired by the region’s strong ties to the agricultural production of wool and cotton and the fibre arts and crafts that emerged with the growth of these industries in the region. Artists from across both the South West and West Darling communities have created an incredible array of fibre artworks inspired by the communities, people, land and cultures in which they live.
This weekend South West Arts are taking Threads of Our Communities to the Deni Ute Muster! Browse the photos below to see the awesome fabric-covered ute decorated by Erin and Carlin from Brave Fabrics!
South West Arts also invite you to the opening of the Threads of Our Communities Fibre Art Prize Exhibition. The exhibition will be opened in Balranald as part of the Five Rivers Outback Festival. Please join them for the opening of the exhibition on Friday 7 October at 6pm, at Theatre Royal, Market Street, Balranald. Follow this link to RSVP online.
Threads of Our Communities will also be a Festival highlight at ARTLANDS DUBBO. For this installation local school students have created thousands of fibre flowers out of all types of fibres and mini cotton reels, to represent the fibre art and industries from their local regions.
