Exhibition, Musings

You are invited to Musings exhibition

Local artist Margaret Adams has created a highly-evocative series of small works that reflect her personal memories over 30 years, in her second exhibition for Newcastle’s Timeless Textiles Gallery, opening this month.
The tiny, complex works she has created for the ‘Musings’ exhibition use materials that reflect significant and meaningful events in her life.
“I have collected memorabilia – maps and tickets from my past meanderings as a 20-year old hitching around Europe, letters home, as well as documents from my father’s collection of receipts and papers,” Margaret says.

While the items themselves are relatively commonplace, it is Margaret’s placement of one element against another that elevates the works into complex constructions.

Her training as a sculptor, and the influence of Japanese ascetics, shine through in the simple, yet thoughtful and mindful composition in her works.

“I’m interested in words and have read and written most of my life,” Margaret said. “My interest – in forming words, in the shapes and lines made when I am writing them – seems weighted in the age of computers.”

Margaret displays her acute eye for line and form in the remarkable small works skilfully prepared for second exhibition at Timeless Textiles Gallery
Musings will run from 16 August to 10 Sept, with an opening by Wilma Simmons on Thursday 17 August.
 NB Parking at Timeless Textiles Gallery, due to the many months of disruption to businesses in Newcastle East (due to work for Newcastle 500) Newcastle City Council has allocated two hours free parking at the nearby King Street parking structure.
The car park will be manned throughout the day. If, for some reason the office is unattended please use the intercom function on the pay stations within the car park.

Please bring the parking ticket to Timeless Textiles Galley so that I can stamp the ticket before it is  presented at the Mall car park office (located on lower ground floor off Laing St).
