A Common Thread


2024 June Sat 15 Sun 16 Fri 21 Sat 22 and Sun 23 10am to 4pm

Opening Saturday 15 June 12.30pm All welcome

This is a collaborative exhibition of pieces by members of Frayed Textile Artists. They are returning to the Watch House with a new exhibition titled “A Common Thread”. These 5 artists took the notion of thread in its multiplicity of forms; thin, thick, rough, smooth, woven, natural, manufactured, colourful – and manipulate, stretch, cover, paint, dye, stitch to create new forms whether they be 2 or 3 dimensional. It is very satisfying to look at these artworks and disseminate the procedures involved and then imagine the thought of the artist and the place from which the artwork evolved; travel, experience, adventure, imagination. Remembering that no matter what their appearance, these works resulted from the interests the artists have in working with textiles, the common thread between us.
Frayed is part of the NSW Branch of ATASDA (Australian Textile Art and Surface Design Association)

Frayed Textile Artists are exhibiting again at the Balmain Watch House. Join us for drinks and nibbles at our opening.
