I would go anywhere to meet up with you
On Friday I'm going to Brisbane with my family for the opening of 'Women in Motion', an exhibition at Pine Rivers Regional Art Gallery, featuring the diverse work of seven women artists, including both my aunt and my mum. Mum has been working on a collection of amazing jackets for over 18 months. We're all really excited to see the show, which includes paintings, ceramics, glass, silver and (naturally) textiles.
'Women in Motion' is on at Pine Rivers Regional Art Gallery, Unit 7/199 Gympie Road, Strathpine. It runs from 18 July to 11 August and the gallery is open Wed-Sat, 11am to 4pm.
The way we dress and present ourselves to the outside world, is a reflection of who we are. It speaks about us, goes before us, and tells a story. In this work I aim to show that you only need one beautiful piece, a jacket, on which to build your story.
An excerpt from Mum's artist statement for the exhibition - you can read the whole statement here.
Unfortunately my photos are all close-ups of detail - because at the time we were aiming for detailed shots that could be used in the design of the invitation / flyer. But I think you can get some idea of what they look like. Beautiful. I'll certainly get more photos at the exhibition.
