(Jutta Faulds)

Threads: Celebrating Fibre Artist Jutta Faulds is an exhibition currently running in the Main Exhibition Room and Schreiner Gallery of the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg.

Jutta Faulds – fibre artist, crafter, quilter, knitter extraordinaire, teacher, organiser, chemist, founding member of Midlands Arts and Crafts Society, and friend to many - turns 80 at the end of this year. In recognition of her extraordinary contribution to the development of Fibre Art both nationally and internationally, this exhibition comprises two parts.

The first is an exhibition in the Main Exhibition Room which consists of artworks made by Jutta Fauld's friends, acquaintances, fellow quilters and fibre artists. These artists were invited to produce artworks that would celebrate her contribution to artistic creativity in South Africa. Many of the participants have been taught by her, or influenced by her in some meaningful way.

The supporting exhibition of Jutta's own art works in the Schreiner Gallery, mostly from the Tatham's permanent collection, showcases the many aspects of Jutta's creative production and will include some of the seminal works produced by this prolific artist.

Threads: Celebrating Fibre Artist Jutta Faulds runs until February 9, 2014, at 17h00. The Tatham Art Gallery is situated opposite the Town Hall in Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg. More information from Bryony Clark at 033 392 2825 (mornings only) or email
