Exhibition of artworks by Farouk Hosny

Exhibition of artworks by Farouk Hosny

We attended an exhibition recently at the Opera House Gallery. If I am
honest, I went as much to see the gallery space since we have beeen
offered it for an Australian Quilt Show later this year.

This is the first piece I saw as we walked in and I assumed, since I
had heard that the artist (male) was a painter, that it was dribbled
paint. It wasn't, it was textile, worked and overworked, mostly in
finer DMC pearl cottons and every sort of fabric scrap you can
imagine. I wanted it, but at the price they were asking I just
couldn't have it. It is the same price as the four wheel drive Jeep
Grand Cherokee that we have just bought!

Loved the details of the exhibition. The colours are wonderful! I don't think you would have trouble selling copies of your book, as I'm sure all the Squilters would buy one. Love your Blogs. Dorothy in Canberra.

Hi Jenny,

I wonder is this work called a quilt or is it textile art? Whatever it is I love it. Do you ever get much time to quilt these days (I wouldn't think so)? If not do you suffer with withdrawal symptons? It's freezing cold here in Canberra today.

Regards Helen
