Warmth, texture and colour featured strongly at the opening of the new exhibition – “Home is Where the Heart is”
Chris Harris welcomed guests to the opening and noted that this exhibition is all about Home and what this means to us. Thirty eight artists from around the region and further afield have contributed paintings, pottery, porcelain, basketry, mosaics, fibre and textile creations that reflect their individual interpretation of the theme .Some pieces portray the familiar domestic world that we know and others present traditional techniques and values from a diverse range of cultures.
Guests attending the exhibition opening were delighted to also see work from two new contributing artisan groups. Basketry SA artists use traditional skills from a wide variety of cultural traditions to produce innovative and contemporary creations.
Two artists from Craftsouth’s traditional Skills Project have brought a vibrancy of colour and texture to the exhibition with their traditional Nigerian batik textiles and Colombian mochilas bags.
Chris Harris noted that whether familiar or new – all of the works exhibited carry with them the warmth of the heart and the hearth of the home. They have all been created from the fire of the artistic soul and with the beauty of love.
A poem by Evan Hawke was read and Una Kelly recited Robert Browning’s poem- “Home thoughts from abroad.”
Guests were delighted to share the observations and thoughts about this exhibition’s theme from Nan Annells who officially opened the exhibition.
Nan urged those attending to enjoy the skills and creativity of our artistic community and to purchase a piece that appealed to their sense of Home.
