After Sydney Craft Week: Continuing Exhibitions
Sydney Craft Week Festival might be officially over for another year but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop quite yet. There are lots of Sydney Craft Week exhibitions still running across Greater Sydney for your viewing pleasure.
Opening 26 October
Second Look: Remade and Reimagined Textiles Exhibition
Barometer Gallery, 13 Gurner Street, Paddington
Second Look: Remade and Reimagined Textiles exhibition reflects on how handmade textiles are made, archived, used and re-used by makers. Exhibitors have saved, stored and archived pieces they have made in the past and reworked them into ‘new’ artworks or have collected interesting textiles to repurpose them into ‘new’ artworks. Using a variety of techniques, these remade works are pieces full of memory with traces of use, history and a past life.
Second Look includes works by: Jane Bodnaruk, Mary Burgess, Vita Cochran, Ro Cook, Michele Elliot, Nicole Ellis, Vivien Haley, Beth Hatton, Wendy Holland, Chris Hutch, Brenda Livermore, Christina Newberry, John Parkes, Emma Peters, Julia Raath, Sylvia Riley, Barbara Rogers, Julie Ryder, Liz Williamson and Melinda Young.
