National Wool Museum - Scarf Festival© 2015: Theme Announcement

Posted by Maggie Hollins, Tuesday, 13th January 2015 @ 1:48pm

  • Coastlines: A great and terrible beauty, where the land meets the sea. No single perimeter measures it or defines it. Forever changing, a fractal paradox, ill-defined in length and where precise lines cannot be determined.


    It is said that 44% of people on earth live within 150 kilometres of the sea and 4 out of 5 Australians live within 50km of the coast.

    Coastlines are all at once comforting and terrifying, they are memories, the epicentre of environmental issues and landscapes unto themselves; like a scarf each with its own inherent personality and its own story to tell.  What direction will you take? 

    Key dates:

    Entries accepted from Monday, 2 March 2015

    Entries close on Friday, 8 May 2015 (both scarves and entry forms are due by this date)

    Exhibition launch on Thursday, 4 June 2015

    Exhibition opens to the public on Friday, 5 June 2015

    Exhibition closes on Sunday, 2 August 2015

    Entry forms will be available soon.

Brigitte Haldemann Querencia Exhibition

Posted by Maggie Hollins, Thursday, 20th November 2014 @ 8:02am

  • Brigitte is a member of the Victorian feltmakers and is having an exhibition.

    Monsalvat Residents Gallery, 7 Hillcrest Ave, Eltham VIC 3095, 
    2 December 2014 - 26 January 2015

    Brigitte uses printed papers and fabrics, collages and sometimes found objects, which are sewn, painted, stacked or glued together. Within these layers the work conveys multiple narratives, which can be interpreted as one chooses. 


    Many of her works are Palimpsests. Palimpsest refers to a surface where the original drawing or painting has been over worked with later markings. Multilayered surfaces are symbolic of the complexity of life itself.
