Horn of Plenty

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

The Ownership Project invites you to Harvest, a celebration of new prints by local East African artists. Industrious neighbourhood afternoons continue to 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. Join us to celebrate the works and connections made to date in the Arts Victoria-supported Mothers and Ink Project II, part of our Creative Capacity Program here in Kulin Country.
