Clay and Thread: Alice Kettle and Helen Felcey
‘Place Settings’ exhibits works by Helen Felcey, a ceramicist known for delicate and distinctive unglazed bone china tablewares, and Alice Kettle, a textile artist familiar for her expressive machine stitched works. The collaboration is a table setting, porcelain pieces conversing with a stitched landscape cloth.
Tom Lundberg Embroidery: Microcosms
The embroideries of Tom Lundberg take a variety of forms; badges, pockets, and footsteps are among the shapes that become emblems of memory, everyday life, and human movement. Within his thread pictures, stitches intersect and overlap to form densely layered microcosms.
Michael Swaine: "Mending for the People" Tenderloin, San Francisco
Once a month Michael Swaine travels to San Francisco’s neediest neighbourhood, the ‘Tenderloin’ where he offers all-day free mending, friendship, and conversation. His mending is not only about the clothes — it is about the community, the people in it, and his own needs to find comfort in a world that is so used to throwing things away.
