The Alliance of Kings Artists’ third year of Uncommon Common Art continues to be a unique community, environmental art project.
And one of the 2010 installations continues to grow.
Kathleen Hull is contributing to several installations in Wolfville and is the inspiration behind a community art installation at the Acadia University Art Gallery. Tree Fibres is on campus in front of the BAC at Main and Highland. Each addition to the piece celebrates the importance of textile art in the Valley.
The final community textile gathering this summer is set for Wednesday, August 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Acadia gallery. Hull will be on hand; she calls the afternoon an opportunity to gather and share a common interest in textile art.
The gathering is a free event and materials are provided. Participants are encouraged to make a work for the Tree Fibres project- what Hull calls a community activated textile. Hull’s own Uncommon Art installation – Looking Back- is located not far away, at the Old Burying Ground in Wolfville.
The project is in conjunction with Alliance of Kings Artists, Uncommon Common Art. For details on the workshop contact the gallery 585-1373.
