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. The exhibition is now on a tour of regional South Australia throughout 2016-17.

Featuring artists Louise Byrne, Annabelle Collett, Cindy Durant, Robyn Finlay, Wayne Mcara, Deborah Prior, Patricia Rose, Sera Waters and Meg Wilson, the artists 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.

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.
