An exhibition by Louise Saxton at The Town Hall Gallery, Hawthorn Arts Centre.
27 October - 16 December
The project is a collection of unique assemblages created from discarded and disinherited linens.
This recent body of work, began with the simple act of stitching together a handful of fabric scraps which had fallen to the floor of her studio as she extracted embroidery and lace.
I especially liked these off cuts from laces, doilies and linens.
My Grandmother had a large jar where she collected the same.
Linens have an important role in both domestic and clinical settings.
Display of haberdashery collection.
Visitors were able to place a cut out piece on netting from the selection of boxes below.
I selected 2 pieces, for myself and a friend who is unable to attend.
