Cooperation in anything is enough of a rarity these days that it makes ‘The Stuffed Stuff Show’ exceptional. The latest exhibition at the Fisher Gallery is a joint statement of its artists, the Fabric Art Company.
‘Stuffed Stuff’ is the product of seven women, all domestic engineers and all keenly aware of the household liturgy demands, chores, situations and solutions. In an effort to expand their artistic life, the Company members all began a fabric art class at WEA with artist Jean Beattie. Group projects were assigned and Fabric Art Company was born. The Group hasn't looked back.
No matter where they exhibit or what the title in particular is, viewers can expect a rib-tickle from Fabric Art Company. Using everyday materials in copious quantity, the Group sews up the domestic scene and presents the humour and joy of ordinary life. There are surprising choices of form and material and extraordinary bursts of imagination.
