THE WIRED LAB is an artist led organisation evolving interdisciplinary art practices in rural Australia. We create opportunities for the research, production and presentation of projects that connect international and local artists with communities in new ways. Our curated programs and projects involve artists working from a regional context whilst producing outcomes of local and global relevance. Our activities range from skills development for young people, seniors, emerging and mid career artists, to the creation, presentation, publication and promotion of new works and major live arts projects.

‘Fabrics & Fibres’ exhibition of community workshop outcomes
August 5, 2015

Fab Fib exh1 SMLFabrics & Fibres is a community exhibition inspired by our natural environment

This exhibition is a collaboration with the wonderful volunteer run The Arts Centre, Cootamundra, and  features  art works by local Cootamundra artists Janelle Noack (Patchwork), Beverly Moxon (Fibre) and participants of The Wired Lab’s 2014 Creative Ageing / ‘Box Gum Grassy Woodlands’ workshop series in bush dyeing, weaving and field recording.  Many of the works in the exhibition are sourced from and inspired by our local bush environs.

We have loaded some of the field recording works on our SoundCloud page, rather impressive for 1st timers!

The exhibition is open until Sunday 9th August, 2015.

Entry by gold coin donation, proceeds to The Arts Centre and its programs.
