(2017-18) "THE NATURE OF THINGS"
THE NATURE OF THINGS exhibition showcases the NCEATA artists's diverse responses, over the course of the year, to three wood blocks created by local printmaker and artist, Bob Seal.
Renowned for their creative interpretations in textile art, members of NCEATA have responded to the theme THE NATURE OF THINGS in surprising and unpredictable ways to create this exhibition.
With an array of fibre art technique used and extended, the works are bursting with texture, diversity and colour. Contemporary embroideries, art quilts, creative wearables, art dolls, felted sculptures and mixed media collages are testament to the creativity and artistry of this group.
