WOVEN by Liz Williamson
September 2 - September 30
As our world is overwhelmed with issues arising from fast fashion/textiles industries, an individual response is to use what we have – repurposing, recycling, circulating existing materials. The idea of making do – using readily available materials for clothing and objects for warmth, protection or to beautify a home has been central to women’s domestic craft practices for centuries and has been central to Williamson’s practice for the past decade. This exhibition shows ‘new’ work created from waste, excess materials, archived designs, old clothes, or other materials.
These pieces woven by Liz Williamson have been shown in previous solo or international exhibitions and this exhibition allows for a ‘second look’ at Barometer Gallery during September 2023. Pieces include works from her ‘sac’ series, early works woven with plant dyed fabric and other works created from readily available materials.
Dates – 2 to 30 September 2023
Opening – Saturday 2 September from 3 pm to 5 pm.
WOVEN can be seen through the gallery windows each day until 10 pm at night.
