Memory and Commemoration

WAFTA has a new members’ exhibition Memory and Commemoration opening at the Perth Craft and Quilt Fair 2015  Wednesday 20 – Sunday 24th May 2015.

The exhibition theme was chosen as a broad spectrum theme (honour, celebration, tribute, reminiscence, recollection and memorial) to embrace those who came before us and give expression to events that shaped our lives.

The theme allows free range to members’ creativity in whatever medium they choose.

This is a detail of my piece Last Post.
