Pushing the Boundaries Stitched and Bound
Twenty Western Australian artists will push the boundaries of conventional quilting at Stitched and Bound, an exhibition of contemporary quilts opening at Heathcote Museum and Gallery on Saturday, 18 August 2012.
Presented by the West Australian Quilters’ Association, Stitched and Bound 2012 will showcase current and original works of twenty Western Australian artists whose individual choice of ideas, materials and techniques offer diverse interpretations to traditional quilting.
City of Melville Acting Curator Olimpia Cullity said Stitched and Bound 2012 is the ninth in a series of biennial juried exhibitions, which since its inception in 1995 has become one of the leading contemporary quilt exhibitions in Australia.
“The Stitched and Bound exhibition which last showed at Heathcote Museum and Gallery in 2010, offers visitors an opportunity to appreciate art and the high skill involved in handmade works. The quilts on display represent the innovation and creative diversity between artists and their personal interpretation of a traditional art form,” she said.
The Western Australian artists who will be exhibiting are Jannette Campbell, Marjorie Coleman, Meg Cowey, Julie Devereux, Ruth De Vos, Ruth Halbert, Judith Harvey, Cherry Johnston, Stephanie Knudsen, Jocelyne Leath, Trish Little, Peggy Lyon, Marian Magee, Adrienne Marshall, Margie McIntosh, Lyn Nixon, Marianne Penberthy, Annette Seeman, Susan Walsh and Louise Wells.
The exhibition will run from Saturday, 18 August 2012 to Sunday, 23 September 2012 at the City of Melville’s Heathcote Museum and Gallery on Duncraig Road in Applecross.
Opening hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10.00am to 3.00pm and Saturday and Sunday, 12 noon to 4.00pm.
