Capertee Visions; Saturday the 4th July from 4-6 pm at Gallery 47
After moving to the Capertee Valley in 2012, Elizabeth McKay was constantly astounded by the spectacular scenery. From open rolling hills to rugged mountains with sandstone cliffs rising from the timber, the changing light and the effects of different weather, provides a constant inspiration. To be surrounded by such beauty it almost becomes an obligation to express your response through some form of art.
Having been interested in sewing and various crafts all her life, it was a natural direction to explore wearable art. Working with natural fibre is a rewarding experience and exploring a number of forms to embellish the works is an adventure.
“I would like my works to be a tribute to the beauty that surrounds me and in some way, a thank you for being privileged to live amongst such beauty.”
The exhibition explores ways to use felt and textiles with embroidered and beaded embellishment.
Just the right time of year to be contemplating a felt wrap or lovely heavy fabric!
The fire will be going, wine will be waiting and Coffee Concrete will be providing delicious food for the opening.
Hope to see you there!
ps the Pat Collins herbal workshop was a blast! 18 of us (and a couple of children) chopped and cooked and produced 8 different products made from weeds and herbs; fit for a queen!
We will be planning another shortly.
See you around,
All the best,
