Transform: shirts reimagined
October 6 - October 22
What can be done with a shirt – any old shirt, a white shirt, a discarded, coloured or patterned; a large or small shirt; worn, torn or damaged shirt; plain, frilly or lightweight or heavy.
Whatever the shirt was to begin with, these artists have repurposed, transformed, manipulated or recreated a shirt, or a couple of shirts into a new piece, a functional object, recreating a new wearable shirt or predominantly, transforming a shirt into a unique artwork.
Artists have also brought their own interests to the project with concerns or references to sustainability, wellbeing, repurposing, making do and remaking to reimagining an outcome, creating a diverse range of new outcomes.
Artists: Vita Cochran, Michele Elliott, Liz Gemmell, Cecilia Heffer, Christina Newberry, Emma Peters, Barbara Rogers, Jane Theau, Liz Williamson and Melinda Young.
