WA Inspired Art Quilters

  • Mundaring Arts Centre | Gallery 1

Using needle and thread instead of paint and brush the WA Inspired Art Quilt Group, consisting of eight like-minded award-winning quilters, create contemporary quilts that share kinship with painters as much as they do with traditional hand sewers. Setting themselves themes, the works on display represent quintessential WA conditions – Sand, Scheme, Strata and Salt (series 1) and Primary Industry (series 2).

Artist in Focus - Alastair Taylor

In the course of a not uncommon discombobulation with the dreaded Facebook, Alastair Taylor managed to lose his page and, in the ensuing search, discovered an alarming number of Alastair Taylors all over the world. Creating a matrix of miniature portraits on metal, Alastair weaves together a world map of a multitude of unknown namesakes.
