COOTS: Central Otago Outside the Square is back with another high-calibre exhibition of amazing fibre art. ‘Visions’ opens at the Lakes District Museum & Gallery in Arrowtown on March 6 and runs for a month until April 5. COOTS is a collective of fibre artists from around Central Otago and the Queenstown Lakes District.
The artists create work with a range of techniques and materials and exhibit only their own designs.
Formed in about 2002, COOTS held its first exhibition as a collective in 2004. The members meet about four times a year, sometimes at a retreat where outside tutors are invited to share new knowledge and techniques.
The Lakes District Museum & Gallery has hosted several COOTS exhibitions during the past few years and the variety and creativity of the artists is always impressive.
The artists featured are:
Alison Naylor, Angela Meecham, Anne McNeill, Amanda Hassleman, Janice Jones, Jeanette Gillies, Jennifer Greer, Jennifer Tayler, Pamela McGeorge, Robyn Van Reenen and Wendy Ward.
The Lakes District Museum is open seven days a week from 8.30am until 5pm.
