Portraits of a Tea Cosy – Loani Prior and photographer Mark Crocker
An incoming touring exhibition that celebrates stories about the humble, but often-quirky, tea cosy by renowned textile artist Loani Prior and photographer Mark Crocker. Inspired by the revival of the 'handmade' Portraits of a Tea Cosy brings together social history, craft, photography and sculpture using the humble tea cosy as a vessel to evoke nostalgic memories and deep familial love.

Portraits of a Tea Cosy is a travelling exhibition developed by Warwick Art Gallery and toured by Museum and Gallery Service Queensland.

Reminiscences – Mi-Kyung Myung
Craft ACT Member and paper artist Mi-Kyung Myung has created a series of small scale paper compositions inspired by traditional Korean craft techniques. Geometry and colour play an important role in expressing her contemporary interpretations of these traditional craft techniques together with her western influences.

Exhibitions run until Saturday 28 March 2015
