work of two outstanding tapestry artists is on show in
the University Gallery this month. Sue Lawty and Meira
Stockl use similar techniques but their work is unique
in appearance and concept. Lawty's linen and raffia tapestries
are subtle and spare, and reflect the power of land and
landscape. Stockl’s tapestries range from small,
abstract jewel-like miniatures to large semi-abstract
images in dark but rich, subtle colours. Both artists
have exhibited internationally. The exhibition includes
sketchbooks, found objects, samples, drawings and colour
experiments, as well as finished pieces, showing the ideas
and working methods used by the artists. The exhibition
runs until June 21 and the gallery is open Mon-Fri 10am-5pm.
Admission is free; ext 32777 for more details. The featured
work is Meira Stockl's Hannah surrounded by the
endless demands of Ban.
