Last Chance to See
This is an exhibition of textile work at Mahara Gallery on till Sunday 21st November. There are some lovely quilts/cloaks by Katherine Morrison. She has them displayed hanging as if they were cloaks around people and inside there are baby clothes, as if the adult cloak is keeping the baby safe. The cloaks are beautifully stitched and the lining/backing of one of them shows the black stitches as if they are pen drawings.
Expressions Gallery in Upper Hutt
Till Sunday 21st November
Mark Lander's paper exhibition. He has the huge sheets of paper hanging in the gallery and you walk through it as if it was a stage set. I did a workshop with Mark years ago and we made huge sheets of paper which we used to make costumes and print on.
