GALLERY ONE, | 21/02/2015 : 05/04/2015
Patricia McMillan, Moira West and Linda Westerman use the theme of Barton’s industrial heritage to celebrate human ingenuity, vision and strength. These attributes are explored using a wide variety of materials, in a modern and unique expression of industrial life. Combinations include natural and man-made materials – fabric, fibre, metal, plastic, rope, silk and wire.
The artists have a love of textiles and fibre because of its rich form and heritage, which speaks so much of history. It is imbued with stories of its origins, its makers, its geographic roots and culture – all of those details “woven” into life’s lush tapestry. Working with fibres offers a rich palette of stories, known and unknown. Enjoy exploring the artists’ interpretations of Barton’s industrialisation.
