Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Louise Weaver, presents work alongside Fiona Abicare, Vicki Couzens, Marion Manifold, Sanné Mestrom, Sally Smart and Kylie Stillman in a new exhibition at Hamilton Art Gallery. The exhibition titled ‘A Stitch in Time‘, brings together seven Australian artists, whom all share an interest in working with an array of traditionally craft-related techniques, deploying a breadth of processes from stitching, beadwork and carving, to assemblage, patchwork and weaving, in their realisation of powerfully contemporary statements.
Curated by Maudie Palmer AO and Eugene Howard, the exhibition runs from 30 November 2019 – 16 February 2020. More information can be found here.
