Pinned and Stitched

Textiles by Belconnen Community Gallery Emerging Artist Support Scheme prize winners Angela Coleman, Portia Lawson, Anna Roufogalis and Rosie Armstrong
21 January to 14 February
Opening celebration Wednesday 22 January at 5.30pm, all welcome

  • Rosie Armstrong uses the techniques of laser cutting and watercolour paints to create a narrative of insect decline.
  • Anna Roufogalis looks into the functionality and beauty of the human body through the lens of textiles. 
  • Portia Lawson’s collection of scientific-like specimens explores the synergy of spontaneity and individuality, and order and uniformity in natural systems of growth through the medium of automated machine embroidery and hand beading. 
  • Angela Coleman’s work investigates our memories attached to and imbued in clothing. The ephemeral nature of both is conveyed through the fragile materiality.
