Devonport Regional Gallery presents the community exhibition, PORTAL, featuring 62 photographs from residents and visitors in Tasmania’s North West captured on Saturday 8 April 2017.

The community photography project captures 24 hours of coastal living through the lenses of people across the North West. Participants were encouraged to register their involvement through the Gallery’s website prior to Capture Day on 8 April – of which 88 registrations were collected. Participants were then asked to capture any moment from their day on Saturday 8 April from across the North West. Photographs were received from Temma to Squeaking Point and at various times across the 24 hour period.

TEXTILE, IMAGE, NOTION

WORKSHOP WITH JENNY OVERTON

Learn how to turn your stories into a visual masterpiece! Finding a nostalgic piece of fabric, an object or image can often influence an artist's design process. The look, feel, smell and wear of an article carries with it its own history and inspiration. Using re-purposed old and found materials and objects, visual artist Jenny Overton will teach you how to present your stories in an abstract or representational way that provokes a memory and creates narrative through stitching, collage and textiles.

Techniques explored will include darning stitches, slow stitching, printing on fabric and collage design. Participants must bring an image or object which will inspire or be incorporated in their work. 

Wednesday 24 May, 6 – 8 pm
Devonport Regional Gallery
$15 / $12 members
Bookings required: 6424 8296 or artgallery@devonport.tas.gov.au
