Featuring artists Louise Byrne, Annabelle Collett, Cindy Durant, Robyn Finlay, Wayne Mcara, Deborah Prior, Patricia Rose, Sera Waters and Meg Wilson. Curated by Polly Dance as part of Adelaide City Council’s 2014/15 Emerging Curator Program.

Craft Anonymous brought together South Australian regional and metropolitan textile, glass, metal and ceramic artists for an exhibition in the iconic Adelaide Town Hall in 2015 and now a tour of regional South Australia throughout 2016-17.

Five regional South Australian and four Adelaide-based artists whose practices employ traditional handicraft techniques such as weaving, embroidery, knitting, felting, enamelling and hand-dying are showcased within a contemporary art context; where old meets new.

These artists have dedicated numerous hours to perfecting and finely crafting handmade works of art in what is often a painstaking but pleasurable process of making and through making with one’s own hands, the artists tell their story.

Craft Anonymous addresses ideas around the body: approaching themes of adornment, embellishment, desire/disgust, and identity: public/private, femininity/masculinity, domesticity, place, family history and a sense of belonging.
