Group exhibition: Woven, unusual textiles, tapestries and woven objects at Kim Sacks Gallery

Sep 2 - Oct 7 2023       153 Jan Smuts Ave, Parkwood
Prolific ceramicist, gallerist and collector Kim Sacks wields her curatorial wand once again for Woven; a tactile new offering at the Kim Sacks Gallery in Parkwood. Sacks has drawn from her personal collection in creating the show which is comprised of hand-picked textiles and tapestries by Ingrid Hague, Frances VH and Crosspolynations alongside a wonderful array of woven objects by African artists and makers.

Woven showcases this age-old art form as applied to intricately constructed baskets, brooms, bags, hats, fans and more.

Rounding out the show is a precious loom which was used to weave Kuba textiles in Kasai, the central southern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo, which illustrates how cloth is made. And for any textile artists attending the exhibit themselves, there is incredible hand spun wool, cotton and mohair on display. This is an altogether inspiring collection, never to be repeated, and we'd highly recommend you visit Woven before it closes on Sat, 7 Nov. The exhibition takes place in the gallery's upstairs Makers Space. While on the premises, take the time to browse the rest of the ever-changing and electic collection of handcrafted wares that populate Kim Sacks Gallery's space at all times.
