Art from the Margins (AFTM) presents our second Inspired AIR exhibition Woven and Tied: Women’s Work?, a showcase of fibre and textile artworks from Artist-inResidence Therese Flynn-Clarke and AFTM Outsider Artists: Vanessa Buiskool, Felicity Clarke, Rebekah Copas, Aunty Dawn Daylight, Uncle? Duane Doyle, Jen Heathwood, Aunty Marlene Wilson, Karen O’Neill and Maureen Young.

In celebration of International Women’s Day 2019, the exhibition is the culmination of a mentorship program where artists,using basketry skills and stitching techniques,have explored the stereotypes of what is considered ‘women’s work’ within the art world. Traditional skills have been reinvented and repurposed to make art that is both thought-provoking and challenges notions of the ‘domestic’ and ‘feminine’.

Make and Take: 2:00–3:00pm
Join mentoring artist Therese Flynn-Clarke and AFTM Outsider Artists for a Make and Take’ free arts activity using a variety of media at AFTM Gallery & Studios.
