Opening: 12th Nov 2pm at Eramboo
Exhibition: 12th Nov - 20 Nov 2016
Writer: Greg Stonehouse
Curator: Susan Milne
Words and images are both carefully constructed processes to real audiences. A writer composes text in imagery, rhythm, space and form just as an artist composes. An artist tells a story just as a writer narrates. For this project writers respond to the shared experiences of artists to find a thread linking their artworks.
From this exchange, the writer creates a short story to be illustrated by the artists. This exhibition is the first of four with the final one being the launch of an illustrated book “Finding a Thread”.
