Redefining the Basket curated by Lissa-Jane de Sailles
7 September - 4 October 2023

What is a basket and how does basket making bridge traditional and contemporary art?

Traditionally baskets have been viewed as utilitarian objects yet, many contemporary artists have been employing or are returning to traditional basketry techniques to explore their art practices.

This exhibition brings together an eclectic group of artists to show the diverse ways that basket making has been redefined through innovative use of techniques, materials, images and meanings.

Ten artists from the USA and ten from Australia have each chosen a piece or pieces from existing bodies of work or have created new works in response to the theme: 'Redefining the Basket'.

Exhibition curator Lissa-Jane de Sailles is a fibre artist who specialises in traditional and contemporary basketry. Her interests include the history of contemporary fibre art in Australia and the USA, as well as teaching, travelling and making in her studio on Jerrinja and Wandi Wandian Land on the South East Coast of NSW.

Lissa-Jane joined the American National Basketry Organization (NBO) in 2015, and in June 2023 was the first international instructor to be included in their conference workshop programme.

The opening event will take place on Saturday, 9 September 2023, 4pm-5.30pm.

Evoke by Cheryl Kennedy
7 September - 4 October 2023

Cheryl Kennedy has created a multi-disciplinary body of work, reflecting her deep connection to Victorian farming country. Her history includes a long line of hard-working, powerful women, who shared their time, skills and stories.

The materials once used and processes once learned, are no longer employed in the production of the practical and functional but have been repurposed into an evocative new context.
Cheryl Kennedy is an assemblage artist based in the rural town of Castlemaine, Central Victoria. Her creative practice explores wire, textiles and collaborative installations. This creativity was triggered by her return to the countryside of her youth, after more than four decades of city living.

Upcoming Exhibitions

The Sum of Us by The Design Divas
6 October - 5 November 2023

The Sum of Us explores concepts of unity and strength. Members of the Design Divas have each created new work in response to this prompt, with some expressing the importance of personal relationships and others taking a broader view as to how they interact with the world around them. While each artist draws upon their individual experiences, they appreciate the creative interactions which emerge via the group's supportive environment.

The Design Divas are challenging the boundaries of contemporary stitch and design, while promoting the use of embroidery as an art form. They formed following the completion of an advanced class at the Embroiderers Guild NSW which taught students to think 'outside the box' while using needle and thread. This is their first major exhibition.
