Art never looked so good
CAROL Boyle creates art you can get right into as well as art you can admire from a distance.
The Raleigh-based fibre artist was recently placed fourth in the Your Dreams section of Tasmania's Fashion Fantasia awards with her wearable art outfit Lady in Green.
Ms Boyle said she was thrilled by her placing as this was the first wearable art outfit she had ever made.
She said the annual Hobart-based Fashion Fantasia, now in its third year, had attracted entries from the USA and New Zealand as well as throughout Australia.
Mrs Boyle is holding an exhibition of her work at the Botanic Garden from today, December 3, until Monday in conjunction with several other local craftspeople, who will exhibit two different types of mosaics and birdbaths.
Ms Boyle also had one of her wall hangings, Crocodile Rock, featured in the November edition of Quilts Downunder magazine.
Earlier this year she won three prizes at the Macksville Show for this hanging, which will be on display this weekend with a new line of contemporary abstract hangings she has just completed as well as wearable art pieces.
