Event Title: MACRO|micro Explorations in Felt.
Participating Artists: FeltWest members.
Venue: Gallery Central,
12 Aberdeen St, Perth.
Description: Feltwest feltmakers explore the MACRO and micro worlds through
innovative technology, pushing their ancient craft into new realms of shape,
pattern and texture in felt in a new exhibition at gallery Central. Perth.
Feltwest members are constantly seeking new ways to create in felt,
endeavouring to push boundaries and develop new approaches. Inspiration has
always come from the world around us but new technologies allow the
exploration of different realms; telescopes like Hubble allow us to see the
beauty of the MACRO and equipment like electron scanning microscopes open
the patterns and colours of the invisible micro. Using a variety of textile
and felting techniques Feltwest members have embraced the MACRO|micro
challenge to produce an array of more than 70 garments, sculptures, vessels
and wall art.
Dates: 19 August, 2016 to 10 Sept 2016.
Opening Times: Mon-Friday 10-4, Sat 12-4.
