Threads of Hope

By PAUL PICKREM

AN UNUSUAL EXHIBITION of feminist art in the form of contemporary handmade quilts that incorporate many sacred symbols prominent in Goddess spirituality is drawing attention in the Valley.

Her search led her to read books highlighting the images and symbols of Goddess spirituality. In 2004 she had a dream in which she saw the image of a lotus flower. “I thought, ‘Wow! That would make a fabulous quilt.’ Weaving and needlecraft is a gift from the Goddess and quilting is a fabulous art form when raising kids because you can put it down and pick it up again.” The various size wall hangings that line the walls of the Macdonald Museum gallery in Middleton are rich with vivid, earthy colours and textures and prominently feature symbols such as inverted triangles and circles and images including trees, flowers, butterflies, spiders, the moon and serpents. The names include Lotus, Labyrinth/Oak, Whirl of Becoming, Healing Tree and Red Path.
