MELD, comprising Perth artists Margaret Ford, Liz Arnold, Louise Wells and Julie Devereux, highlight the variety of media and techniques employed in contemporary textile art. Their works demonstrate that, in addition to the traditional decorative role, textile works can convey deep meaning and stimulate an emotional response. The artists explore what happens when that which is hidden is revealed. Hidden Revealed Transformed challenges the traditional contexts of the textile medium by incorporating drawing, quilting, freeform crochet, embroidery, dyeing, collage and painting into work which depicts the transformative effects of releasing latent energy, revealing secrets, exposing vulnerabilities, and peeling back layers of protection.

10am – 4pm Monday to Friday and 12 to 4pm Saturdays.
