“We are delighted to showcase the beauty and wonderment of fibre art in this upcoming exhibition ‘Birds in the Hunter’,” said Ileana Clarke of the Artisan Collective.

“In this exhibition, Australian birdlife is featured by artists who come from various countries.

“Their expertise in fibre and textile art is evident in the diversity of their artworks in this exhibition.”

Artists utilising fibre art techniques have been included in this unique exhibition, representing countries from around the world.

Depictions of birds will have been wrapped, stitched, sculptured, painted, embroidered and screen printed, enabling the viewer to explore a vast array of fibre art techniques.

Anne Kempton of Timeless Textiles showcases the wonder and collectability of fibre art by holding exhibitions and workshops with acclaimed national and international artists who practise fibre art techniques.

The exhibition’s official opening will be on 20 July, but will run throughout the month.
