I know, I know – yesterday I talked about the ArtExpress exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Today I’m bringing you news of another exhibition, this time at the Powerhouse Museum. What can I tell you? – I’m mining a theme. I’ve also had visitors from New Zealand staying. You may get more of the same tomorrow!
The Love Lace exhibition is an impressive show of 130 Lace Works by 134 artists from 20 different countries. Each artist displays their passion for lace in this beautiful (if a little dark) exhibition of winning entries and finalists in the Powerhouse Museum International Lace Award.
To be honest, I had read about the Love Lace exhibition and, despite a keen interest in surface design and fibre art, wasn’t that motivated to go and see it. Well, I was pleased to be proved wrong. It is well worth a visit. The works are amazing, and my wee nephew even got to make slime from scratch as part of the school holiday programme.
I am loving this renaissance of traditional arts and crafts with a modern interpretation.
The Love Lace exhibition runs at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney until April 2013.
If you don’t live in Sydney, you can check out the Love Lace exhibition online at the Powerhouse Museum Website (here). Alternatively, another great reason for you to come and visit!
