EFTAG’s Next Exhibition supports “Re-Valuing”- “Mottainai”

Eurobodalla Fibre & Textile Artists’ Group (EFTAG) is once again hosting its annual members’ exhibition. EFTAG Exhibition Coordinator, Mandy Hillson says “Our theme for this year is inspired by the Japanese term ‘Mottainai’ or ‘Re-Value’. It’s about recognising the intrinsic value of objects and using them fully or all the way to the end of their lifespan – don’t be wasteful.” “Leave no grain of rice in your bowl; if a toy breaks, repair it; and take good care of everything” Mandy says that the Annual Exhibition is one of the means by which EFTAG stimulates, inspires and supports its members to strive for excellence in their field of textile and fibre practice. She says that members have been encouraged to experiment and to take on board creative risk taking. “With that philosophy, this year’s exhibition will present new works by our artist, in fresh and exciting ways” she said. The Exhibition will be opened by Keiko Amenomori-Schmeisser, an internationally recognised Japanese textile artist who lives in Australia.
