Guest Curator - Birgitta Debenham 

The individual voice of an artist is unique, and not like any other artist's. Some state what they want you to see and understand with clarity and emphasis, while others invite you to linger and contemplate a more subtle message. Exploring these contrasts provides a rich source of inspiration and enjoyment.

Handed Down
Handed Down was created using 100% repurposed materials including more than a dozen vintage pairs of gloves, a paisley wool scarf and a card table sized cutwork tablecloth. It is completely hand stitched with the names of family members going back nine generations. The work pays homage to the tradition of handwork, stories, legends and legacies passed from older women to younger women.
