Natural Wonders | 22nd October 2014 - 9th November 2014
Natural Wonders, natural dyes on paper and textiles by Julie Ryder.
Natural Wonders is a mixed media exhibition consisting of works on paper and naturally dyed and stitched textiles derived and inspired by organic materials drawn and collected from sites that hold personal significance for the artist. Her daily journey from home to studio, and the many bush and urban walks she takes have inspired her to look at the native and introduced flora of Canberra, delving into its history to determine the impact that white settlement and the urbanisation of this designed city had on the traditional lands of the Ngunnawal. Textiles have been dyed with plants from specific sites, during specific seasons of the year to build up a colour profile of the territory, and showcase the beauty to be found within.
Gallery Hours: Thursday-Sunday, 11-5pm.
Opening Night: Thursday 23rd October, 6pm.
