The Art Works! Perth organization was founded as a way for local artists to connect with and support each other, and to provide ways to display their art to the world. Perth is a heritage town in a beautiful and varied area, and as such attracts a large number of visitors to enjoy the local lakes, the countryside, the cuisine and the many cultural events for which Perth is famous. When you think of arts & culture, you'll think of Perth! By creating an annual studio tour of exceptional artists, Art Works! Perth provides an opportunity to meet the people who make art in and around this lovely town.
So, save the dates, and come and visit. June 24-26 from 11am until 5pm
News from Jozo Designs
Undyed woolen fiber comes in many shades of ivory, beige, brown and black. The coarseness of fiber varies greatly as does the length. When working the fiber with soap and water, the fibers tighten and shrink at different rates and produce smooth or bumpy or hairy surfaces. I have been playing with mixtures of fibers, using various thickness and letting the different shrinkage rates create interesting topology. Jo-ann Zorzi is really enjoying the subtle and the not so subtle contrasts in color and in texture. She is looking forward to sourcing fiber from a broader range of breeds and continuing on this adventure. Keep an eye on her website to keep up to date on her activities beyond the 7 Works Collective, you'll be amazed!
