A major collection of work by Clare Plug
Date: May 7 – Jun 3Space: Main Gallery
Clare Plug has worked as a textile artist since completing a Craft Design Certificate at EIT in 1990. In the beginning this was primarily in the quilt medium. She printed and dyed most of her own fabric and these were assembled and quilted by machine.
Clare has exhibited widely in New Zealand and internationally, as well as completing further study in art-quilt making in the USA. She has been featured in numerous publications and received a number of awards.
Her artworks draw from her lifelong passion for nature and the environment and it follows themes relating to the landscape. A highlight for Clare was being awarded an Antarctic Artist Residency in 2006, and since then she has been pursuing themes relating to issues of climate change.
Come along, meet Clare and celebrate the opening of her exhibition on Saturday 15 May, at 5.30pm. All welcome! Light refreshments will be served.
View Clare’s major exhibition of work ‘Re-View’ until Thursday, June 3 in the Main Gallery.
