18 Jan: Sea Stories Exhibition
Sea Stories is an exhibition showcasing Catherine Stringer’s unique artworks created from marine macroalgae (seaweed).
Catherine first started working with seaweeds during a residency at the King Island Cultural Centre in 2011, and these works demonstrate the development of her paper making techniques since that time.
Artworks are inspired by two stories from two islands on opposite sides of the world –the Neva shipwreck story on King Island and the Icelandic tale of the Seal Woman.
Interweaving themes of separation, loss and transformation connect these two tales.
All are welcome at the exhibition opening on Friday 18 January, with the invitation available for download below:
