I am one of 10 artists selected by artist /curator Virginia Kaisar to exhibit at Katoomba Fine Art, in an exhibition titled. 'Basketry of Today', which opens today (6th November, 2pm) and runs to the 29th November. Artworks may be seen online HERE.
Katoomba Fine Art is located at 98 Stuarts Road, Katoomba.
About the exhibition, Director Geoff White says;
What is a basket? Simplistic definitions relate to functionality, with basket-making seen as a craft with traditional origins. Yet contemporary basketry is challenging perceptions, pushing the boundaries of sculptural expression and blurring the line between craft and fine art. Colour, materials, texture, form and even smell can each be a feature of basketry, while basket-making technique or some concept of vessel can also be distinguishing features.
‘Basketry of today’ is the title for this exhibition, which explores the notion of contemporary basketry and fibre art. The show has been curated by Virginia Kaiser, a renowned Australian basket maker, with an international reputation. Virginia has been at the forefront of contemporary basket making in Australia for the past two decades and has selected 10 leading artists, who each have contributed new works to this amazing exhibition.
