Women’s art on display

Art-Lovers in the north-west will have a unigue view opportunity to view visual arts from all over the world, as a very special exhibition takes place to mark Refugee Week 2011.

Launched on Thursday, Eden Place Arts Centre plays host to a display of work by women from the Multi-cultural Programme at the Women’s Centre. The exhibition will continue on for a month.

The exhibition shows off the talents of many of the women from all around the world who now reside in the city and demonstrates its growing multi-cultural nature.

Amongst the exhibits are masks from Japan, embroidery from Russia and Iran, paintings from Pakistan and India and drawings from Korea, as well as sculpture and other pieces from all over the world. The exhibition will also feature quilts made by the group and there will be work on show from some of the local women involved with the group.

Many of the group contributed to The Book of Belles - the magnificent art project celebrating International Women’s Day that was such a hit earlier this year and that will also be on display.
