This morning I’m wishing I could just pop over to the other side of the world – just for a browse around the Powerhouse Museum to see the Love Lace exhibition.
The Lace Study Centre at the museum looks interesting – I love the short video of a ‘political protest by a genteel lady’ of a beheading.
“LOVE LACE – Make Lace Not War” looks like it’s a fab exhibition – showcasing over 130 laceworks from 134 artists from 20 different countries.
There are loads of photos and info on the website though, including videos and resources for teachers – so if you can’t get to Sydney – make Sydney come to you!
For those of you who went to see the Lost in Lace exhibition in Birmingham and still feel like you need a lace fix to get you through the day… take a peek …
UK registered exhibitors in the Australian exhibition include:
Shane Waltener, Karen Nicol, Jo Scholar, Bozena Hanna Kaluga, Laura Anne Marsden, Helen Snell, Vivienne Martin, and a collaboration between Australian and British architects Mesne and Supermanoeuvre and Maria Biehn who hails from the US but now lives in UK and also Wendy Ramshaw
If like me you love the red Wendy Ramshaw collars of petrified lace, shown on the exhibition site… you can see more of Wendy Ramshaw’s work in UK this year – pop along to Somerset House ( March 28th – June 24th) for the Room of Dreams exhibition – or other touring venues later in the year – Ruthin Craft Centre Wales, Harley Gallery Nottinghamshire, Dovecot Studios Edinburgh and mima in Middlesborough.
