Warps and Wefts

4 - 29 June 2018
Adelaide Central Gallery

Nerida Bell, Nicole Clift, Lucia Dohrmann and Helen Fuller

Contemplative and richly textured, this exhibition offers a range of lateral approaches to fabric and textile art from four exceptional artists working in a variety of mediums.

Nerida Bell, Nicole Clift, and Lucia Dohrmann are recent visual arts graduates who have been brought together by Curator, Andrew Purvis, to work and exhibit alongside eminent established artist, Helen Fuller. 

The warp and the weft are the perpendicular threads which, when woven together, give strength to fabric; one without the other is just a loose jumble of yarn. For this reason, weaving is often used as a metaphor for community and the resilience and growth that can come from our close interpersonal relationships.

Read more information about the works and artists in the Media Release.

This exhibition aims to build an artistic cohort: a group which can collaborate, inspire, mentor and support each other long after the project is finished.

This mentor/mentee exhibition model will form an ongoing, annual feature of the Adelaide Central Gallery programme, in which recent graduates will be connected with a highly-regarded, professional mentor. This mentorship will then culminate in a joint exhibition at Adelaide Central Gallery.
