Refinery ArtSpace (3, Halifax St, Nelson) Mon-Fri, 10am - 5pm; Sat, 11am - 2pm
Monday 24th February-Saturday 28th March 2020 ANGLES OF PERCEPTION Woven Form
A stunning exhibition from the Professional Weavers Network.
Angles; form; size, shape, perspective, energy; an explosion of saturated colour on black.
The very process of weaving is a mathematical procedure. The development of the design using computer imagery or on a graph; the development of the draw down and putting the warp on the loom,
the weaving – the placing of the weft over the warp, whether on a loom or hand manipulated, in various sequences produces angles and forms throughout the web of fabric. The flow of the weave is then swept into the shape of an object – 3D or 2D, it doesn’t matter – the expression of angles, size, shape, construction and colour will delight the senses.
Opening Celebration 5.30pm Mon 24th February

Monday 30th March-Thursday 30th April Raking through the Ashes
In her first solo exhibition, Wellington-based photographer Sam Gorham presents a year-long culmination of research, site photography, and collection of tobacco ephemera, held within large scale photographic collages. Raking through the Ashes is a photographic investigation examining the contested past, present and future of tobacco production in Aotearoa, New Zealand. The historical journey into tobacco production led her to Motueka, where defunct kilns, archival hubs and local knowledge enriched the materials that contribute to Gorham's project.
You are warmly invited to the exhibition opening complimentary refreshments provided. Opening Celebration 5.30pm - Wednesday 1st April
