An exhibition celebrating the distinctive work of Julie Paterson, artist, designer, writer and founder of the contemporary design company Clothfabric – showcasing the process at work from the initial idea through to final realisation.
The exhibition will focus on nine key textile groupings – the first called Seeds and the last one Bloom. Contemporary textiles commonly sit at the practical end of art and design. Cloth: Seeds to Bloom is comprised of Julie Paterson's domestic textile objects, which take the viewer on a journey from the humble seed through to the luscious bloom.
Nine key textile groupings are broken into individual rooms with each displaying objects rich with pattern.
Each space will include a fabric drop, an upholstered chair, a rug, a lamp, the original artworks and sketchbooks that inspired that particular design. There is an intention to show the process at work from the initial idea through to final realisation.
Cloth: From Seeds to Bloom is an Australian Design Centre Touring Exhibition, developed and first presented by Sturt Gallery, Mittagong as ClothFabric: 20 Years in the Making.
Friday 13 May, 6pm.
Cloth: Julie Paterson, Northern Exposure 4, Let the Chips Fall Where They May: Catherine and Jennifer Strutt.
