An exhibition of textile art by Cary Leech and baskets by Jeanette Carter and glass by Jenie Yolland
25th October to 25th November 2019
These 3 friends met at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre and have decided to pool their talents for this exhibition
Carly has been working in textiles for 27 years, starting as a weaver and silk painter.
Carly changed her style once she became interested in drawing with a sewing machine or free motion machine embroidery and wanting to explore 3D forms. The garden bowls were developed over a 2 year period. Working out the best sewing methods and flower stitching to the right stiffener.
A lot of Carly’s work is inspired by nature, colour and texture and mixing her different techniques together.
Jeanette is an art teacher and a fibre and clay artist who has been weaving baskets for 27 years. She was introduced to making traditional baskets in 1986 when she was awarded a teacher exchange to Pennsylvania USA for a year.
Jeanette has exhibited in the Bolin Bolin Gallery numerous times and also takes basket weaving workshops at Bulleen Art & Garden
Jenie Yolland designs are directly inspired by nature soaring clouds, heart-warming sunsets, glistening raindrops on gum leaves, even a macro photograph of chlorophyll cells.
Jenie loves the interplay of contrasts; enlivening the final result with splashes of sparkling dichroic glass that sparkles and reflects sunlight in the most magical way.
Beginning with a passion for watercolour painting, Jenie Yolland has been working with kiln-formed glass for over 20 years and her glass is also exported all over the world. She is exhibited and collected widely.
