Exhibition - Inner Journeys
by Salt (South Australian living textiles)
Opening on Saturday 4th November
Salt (South Australian living textiles) is a group of 5 independent textile artists, whose status as artists range from emerging to well-established artists.
The five members of SAlt - Judy Bushby, Julie Haddrick, Francie Mewett , Sara Bell Smith and newcomer Wendy Thiele – worked to a common theme of Inner Journeys and a standard size of 36 x 120 cm (16 x 40 inches). The broad-based theme provided many opportunities to explore personal issues and perhaps journeys of the mind. Each artist developed a personal sub-themes and worked independently to create a suite of five wall textiles designed to be displayed together. Finding one’s identity and creative, emotional or spiritual home can be a lifelong journey and each fabric piece is very personal. This exhibition at times confronts yet can reveal the hidden power of one’s inner journey as each of the five themes unfold: physical journey, emotional journey, spiritual journey, creative journey and the journey of discovery.
The exhibition was one of several fibre arts exhibitions presented at the Stitches and Craft show in Adelaide in November 2016 and has toured to several venues in Australia and New Zealand during 2016-2017.
