ORNATE: South Australian Contemporary Textiles

For the next few months leading up to May, we will feature the artists exhibiting in ORNATE: South Australian Contemporary Textiles at Prospect Gallery. The exhibition of eight emerging contemporary textile artists aims to signify textiles as an innovative medium in contemporary visual arts culture.

Ali Carpenter, Kara Growden, Laura Haigh, Kate O'Leary, Jessica Sanguesa, Ashleigh Taylor, Lara Torr and Briony Vickery have taken a variety of approaches to the  theme of "pattern" with an underlying ambition of reinventing the ideals and importance of the "hand-made" to a culture that is strongly influenced by the mechanized.

The exhibition dates run from 1-22 May with an opening event to be held on
Sunday 1 May 4-6pm.
