Mode and Motif has a strong emphasis on design and style is now open, showcasing the works of three talented local artists and craft practitioners - Brett Tully, Sarah Boulton and Jenny Carrington. 

Furniture designer Brett Tully produces highly-crafted furniture and homewares with a distinctive minimal and timeless quality, made mostly using reclaimed and sustainable timbers. Coffee tables, side tables, mirrors and lighting are featured in this exhibition, though Brett also makes larger pieces by private commission. 

Sarah Boulton’s paintings reflect her love of pattern and texture inspired by the artist’s love of the bushland environment and seasonal change. Her vibrant use of colour and configuration immediately entice the viewer to come closer to explore the detail and richness in each work.

Jenny Carrington is a multi-faceted artist who has returned to the weaving loom after many years to explore the pleasures of woven textiles with amazing results. Jenny uses her own homespun and natural-dyed wool, as well as yarns from the Bendigo Woollen Mills to create her exquisite designs for scarves, shawls, knee-rugs and table-runners. 

The Visitor Centre will host a demonstration of weaving by Jenny Carrington from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday June 17.  You are invited to come along and meet the artist and learn about wool-dying and weaving techniques.

Mode and Motif is a must-see for anyone who appreciates beautiful things. The dynamic atmosphere created by the combination of furniture, textiles and painting is uplifting and inspiring.

The Living Arts Space, housed within the Bendigo Visitor Centre, has given many local artists the opportunity to showcase their works to a wide audience including large numbers of visitors to the region as well as residents of the city and surrounds.

The exhibition will continue until Sunday July 30, 2017. The Bendigo Visitor Centre is open daily between 9am and 5pm.
