“Lost and Found” is the theme for the annual EFTAG (Eurobodalla Fibre and Textile Artist Group) exhibition at the Mechanics Hall at Page Street Moruya.
It opens on Friday, December 1 at 6pm and is open daily from 10am to 4 pm until December 10.
As usual patrons can be assured of a feast for the senses. EFTAG has now over 40 members from all along the South Coast.
Fibre and textile artists from Milton to Tathra get together to show their creations. EFTAG’s eclectic and vibrant shows are now nothing short of legendary on the south coast art scene.
The materials and techniques used by artists are as varied as is their background. From feltings to sculptures to paper art and hand stitched Boro.
EFTAG members dye with plants like indigo and eucalyptus use recycled materials from antique kimonos to old jeans and create unique works from sticks, beach pollutants and old wire. Most EFTAG members have quite a reputation in the arts world for their vision and innovative approach to their work.
EFTAG is in its 12th year of providing top national and international tutors for its workshops. It is encouraging local artists to push their artistic boundaries.
The aim for EFTAG has always been to help its members see the potential in the unusual and less conservative textile and fibre art forms.
EFTAG is a vital part of our community and judging by the interest shown by this community in its annual wearable art fashion parade and exhibitions it can be said: EFTAG is one of the more successful art groups in its field.
So come along and see for yourself what a little bit of daring and creating outside the box can crate. You sure won’t be disappointed.
The exhibition will be opened by Helen Maxwell who is known for her first commercial gallery, aGOG (Australian Girls Own Gallery) in Canberra. Helen is also a well known art curator and educator in modern art at the ANU.
It is an honour and a privilege to have Helen open EFTAGs exhibition this year. All are welcome to join us for nibbles and drinks at 6pm on Friday night
