14th Aug 2010 - Contemporary Quiltmaker Helen Lancaster will bring a retrospective of her work to the Quilt Study Group of NSW at the Powerhouse Museum from 2pm to 4pm.
Many of us have enjoyed wonderful contemporary textile exhibitions at the Fairfield Gallery over the last 10 years. Its commitment to textile art is unique among the galleries of Sydney and is largely due to the enthusiasm and support of conceptual environmentalist, Helen. Since her first exhibition in 1980, Helen has used textiles in unique ways to make comments about the environment, focusing on the Great Barrier Reef.
This event will be held in the Powerhouse Learning Centre, at the PowerhouseMuseum.
Entry is free for members of the Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc. and afternoon tea will be provided.
