Artisan invites you to attend the opening of Desert Psychedelic, an exhibition celebrating the achievements of Jimmy Pike, acknowledging his position as not only one of the great Indigenous artists, but also one of the greatest Australian textile designers of the 20th century.
Wednesday April 8 2009
6:00pm - 8:00pm
The exhibition will be opened by Her Excellency the Governor of Queensland, Ms Penelope Wensley, AO. Not to be missed, an opening night fashion performance of the wild celebratory garments of the late eighties by Desert Designs, styled by designer, Christine Thorley.
Artisan is located on the corner of Ivory and Brunswick Streets in Fortitude Valley (Brisbane). Their exhibitions are always good fun (free wine) and I love the Mart store that stocks Australian hand-made goodies including Thea & Sami hand-printed tea-towels and tablecloths. Thank you Denise, Andrea and Shannon for selling so many lately!
