HORN OF PLENTY OPENING 8 AUGUST IN CRAFT CUBED FESTIVAL
Horn of Plenty is an exhibition of new prints by local East African artists, the culmination of two years of workshops. Industrious neighbourhood afternoons weave conversation with vibrant pattern work, encompassing daily rituals, henna work, seasonal harvests, and playful objects.
Adept at storytelling, the artists have individual sensibilities for texture, colour, and pattern. The works voice personal histories of movement and home, marking connections to place and to times past and to come.
Horn of Plenty is a satellite exhibition in the Craft Cubed Festival: The Art of Handmade, running 1-31 August 2014. In the trio of exhibitions it follows Harvest (2014) and Mothers and Ink (2013). This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria.
Opening: 6pm Friday 8 August
Current: 8-24 August in Craft Cubed Festival
