Exhibition Announcement – Judy Hooworth
ARTIST INSPIRED BY DORA CREEK
Internationally acclaimed fibre artist Judy Hooworth uses her local environment around Dora Creek as the inspiration for her third exhibition at Newcastle’s Timeless Textiles Gallery in November.
Documenting walks along the creek with photographs and drawings, watching the birds and generally ambling about ‘Down the Creek’ has been integral to Hooworth’s life and artistic practice for the last 14 years. She draws on this resource for the quilts in this latest exhibition.
“I’m fascinated by patterns, light on water, trees and branches, grasses and leaves, the changing colours and moods created by variations in the weather, day by day” she said.
