Wild, Pure, Aesthetic Wonder-Exhibition

Wild, Pure Aesthetic Wonder will showcase contemporary fibre art by Newfoundland and Labrador artists, and by those with a strong connection to this province, and will reach a large and diverse audience in two major centres in the province. The exhibition will open in the Craft Council Gallery in St. John’s, NL in March 2015.  In May, the exhibition will travel to the Gallery at the Discovery Centre in Woody Point in Gros Morne National Park.

This Contemporary Fibre Art Exhibition is inspired by the unique natural and cultural wonders of Gros Morne which range in scale from the epic to the microscopic to the sublime.  Wild, uninhabited mountains, towering cliffs of a freshwater fjord carved out by glaciers, wind-wizened tuckamore, technicolour lichens, textural fossils.  The history of those who lived in the region and who live there today bring a human response to the spirituality of the landscape.

The Exhibition is curated by Gloria Hickey and Philippa Jones
