Exhibition with SAQA members at Textile Festival in Leiden (NL)

English translation:

6 Textile artists show their work in an exposition in BplusC artcentre in Leiden (Netherlands) from May 13th until June 27.
As part of the 2015 Textile Festival 6 women show a total of 18 artworks, inspired by 3 themes: Gender, White and Architecture.

Individually the 6 ladies presented their work in the Netherlands and abroad. As Texperanto they form a cohere group and this is the first time for a joint presentation.

The exhibition enjoys great variation and beauty, stimulated on one hand by the variety of techniques and on the other by the individuality of the 6 ladies.
These different techniques are not an end in themselves, but serve a meaningful and visual medium in the presentation of the chosen themes.

This show is highly recommended! It is part of the Leiden Textile festival.
