Contextural Meets Barbara

Textile Arts – An Artist Panel Discussion

A discussion of textile arts: then and now. Join the artists of Contextural, the current keepers of the Barbara Leighton textile archive and local artists from the heyday of Barbara’s textile arts production. Topics will include the exhibited works from then and now, their creation, their inspirations and techniques, and the specific pairings in the exhibition. This round table panel will include Contextural artists and the artists who would have participated in Leighton Centre workshops with Barbara herself. Moderated/refereed by Leighton Centre Archive Director Stephanie Doll, the discussion promises to be as eclectic as the artists and the archives themselves
