Sera Waters and Paul Yore are showing in ‘Domestic Crafts’ at Rosny Barn, Tasmania curated by Nichole O’Loughlin.

This group exhibition showcases boundary pushing, textile-based works.  The exhibition acknowledges the demarcation between craft and fine art since the 1970s which has paved the way for contemporary artists to use textiles in dynamic and powerful ways.  ‘Domestic Crafts’ features artists who employ textiles in diverse methods, including embroidery, quilting and soft sculpture. 

The exhibition includes emerging and established Tasmanian, Australian and international artists to provide a broad picture of the current state of contemporary textiles.

Exhibition runs until 22 December 2019.
