‘From the Bower: patterns of collecting’ is a touring exhibition presenting artworks and items from the personal collections of four contemporary Victorian artists: Loris Button, Deborah Klein, Louise Saxton and Carole Wilson.
The exhibition is a series of installations that will features a range of curiosities (such as natural history specimens, memorabilia and domestic textiles) alongside works by the artists that respond directly and/or relate to their collections.
The work in this exhibition is rich with personal narrative, loaded with nostalgia, beautifully crafted and so very engaging to look upon. Even more so, through the inclusion of the accompanying objects. Warrnambool Art Gallery is delighted that Loris Button, Deborah Klein, Louise Saxton and Carole Wilson have made From the Bower: patterns of collecting and allowed us in.
