Mid North Coast fibre artists network launch Entwined exhibition at Nexus Gallery

“All human lives are so profoundly and intricately entwined-those dead, those living, those generations yet to come-that the fate of all is the fate of each, and the hope of humanity rests in every heart and in every pair of hands” – Dean Koontz

In the Entwined exhibition members of the Fibre Arts Network employ their hands and hearts to illuminate the many aspects of this interconnectedness using the medium of one of the most ancient forms of expression fibre. The exhibition is open daily 10am to 4pm until June 22 at the NEXUS Gallery in the Old Butter Factory at Bellingen.

The Fibre Artists Network, (FAN) was formed in 2001, commencing with a few friends who extended invitations to other fibre workers to become involved, since then membership hovers around the 20 mark, all of us residing along the Mid North Coast.
