Lace as you’ve probably not seen it before!
Alvena Hall has been making lace for a long time. Her hours of dedication (and practice!) show in this glorious exhibition of landscapes constructed from her machine made lace. The works include delicate shadow quilts, hand-painted silk and exquisite constructions on canvas.
For some ten years now, she has portrayed Flinders Ranges fossils in her intricate work. A couple of years ago, she was a finalist in the South Australian Museum’s acclaimed Waterhouse Prize and her work has shown in such illustrious venues as Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum.
