History weaved into art exhibit Precious pieces: A new duvet cover created by Helen Crompton from recycled fabrics for the upcoming Precious Pieces exhibition at the Red Shed. Fabric lover Lynda Johnson is curating an exhibition which celebrates heirloom fabric pieces and their stories. Precious Pieces at the Red Shed Gallery in Palm Beach opens August 5 at 4pm. New fabric works by artists will be exhibited alongside heirloom pieces which will be accompanied by stories about their history and their owners. So many families have precious textile pieces that have been handed down for generations. They tell stories about the people who made them and have owned them,'' Ms Johnson says. New works include knitted tea cosies by Cheryl Lyall, felt dolls by Maggie Wikaira and reconstructed works from antique fabrics by Helen Crompton. Ms Johnson says the exhi- bition got her thinking about what our generation will hand down to the next and she hopes some of the new works exhibited will become heirlooms too''. Several of the artists are members of the Upcycle group which makes new works from recycled materials. Member Bea Lori- mer says the new works they create hold the history of their previous lives, making them even more precious''. Weaver Lynne Stewart will be exhibiting works created when she was involved in a weaving workshop in Greece in the early 1970s, alongside new fabric works. She says while looking for and finding the 1970s weav- ings she also found photos and journals from that time and it became a real walk down memory lane''. Other exhibits include a family christening gown, a reconstructed heirloom tap- estry and new works by Anna Pashby, Rose Mcleod and Hazel Rachtman. A new collection of Wai- heke Prayer Flags by Lynda Johnson and Nora West depicting different symbols of the island will be for sale. Precious Pieces will run during the month of August which also brings the Fabricadabrica fabric Fair to the Palm Beach Hall on August 21 from 9am to 2pm.
