Deadlines and Sneak Peaks

The end of June was the first MELD deadline (no pressure) just a more formal show and tell of our works completed and in progress for the exhibition. It was a chance to see the whole body of work and therefore how all the works will relate to each other. The support from fellow members, gentle critique and encouragement is most valued by all of us.  At this meeting we also took the opportunity to finalise a promotional blurb and some images (sneak peaks only) for the gallery.

Our promotional blurb –

MELD, comprising Perth artists Margaret Ford, Liz Arnold, Louise Wells and Julie Devereux, highlight the variety of media and techniques employed in contemporary textile art. Their works demonstrate that, in addition to the traditional decorative role, textile works can convey deep meaning and stimulate an emotional response. The artists explore what happens when that which is hidden is revealed. Hidden Revealed Transformed challenges the traditional contexts of the textile medium by incorporating drawing, quilting, freeform crochet, embroidery, dyeing, collage and painting into work which depicts the transformative effects of releasing latent energy, revealing secrets, exposing vulnerabilities, and peeling back layers of protection.
