CORNER BROOK
There are two new exhibitions at the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College Art Gallery. The Tactile Vision: Dorothy Caldwell and Beth Oberholtzer and Stitching Women’s Lives: Sujuni and Khatwa from Bihar, India, curated by Dorothy Caldwell and Dr. Skye Morrison. They will continue until April 13. Stitching Women’s Lives: Sujuni and Khatwa from Bihar, India offers a selection of six sujuni and one khatwa produced by the women of ADITHI which is a women’s NGO based in the state of Bihar, India. Sujuni refers to a straight running embroidery stitch on layered (often recycled) cotton while Khatwa uses applique. Both forms have functioned as a forum for socio-political issues affecting women. The works in this exhibition were commissioned by Caldwell and Morrison for exhibition at the Textile Museum of Canada. For more see the Web site at www.swgc.mun.ca/artgallery/
