Ever stopped to look at the textures around us? This collaborative art show explores those textures through various mediums: printmaking, photography, pottery, painting, weaving, jewellery, bookmaking, and furniture. The 8 artists come from a mixture of backgrounds from printmaking, pottery and painting to weaving, graphic design and bookmaking. Each artist interprets the theme in their own way. They met through the Hutt Art Centre and have exhibited at the Hutt Art galleries and other galleries around New Zealand.
