(“Good government bad government” - collage, acrylic ink, thread on fabriano paper by Anthea Martin)

Running in the Middle Gallery of artSPACEdurban is an exhibition titled Threaded Drawings.

This is a group exhibition by artists who have produced works that are embroidered, machine-stitched, hand-stitched, whatever but based on drawings by their ‘favourite’ artist, or even just of one of their drawings that they love. Other media may be incorporated into the works just as long as the main focus is using thread.

Each work is accompanied by a statement with an image of the inspirational source.

The participating artists are: Anthea Martin, Heather Pattenden, Jenny Retief, Joan Martin, Julie Mayo, Lara Mellon, Leone Malherbe, Pamela Benporath, Siobhan O’Reagain, swany and Karen Bradtke.

artSPACE durban is situated at 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or
