Fashions of a Bygone Era
May 2 - May 27Free
RT Artspace at the Raymond Terrace Library from 2nd to 27th May is hosting a private collection of 1945-1950 original watercolour fashion designs by then art student, Hazel Howship.
The collection also includes photos of Hazel modelling clothing she designed, along with hand-coloured photos….she was employed by Geoffrey Bakers Studios in Melbourne as a professional photo-colorist. She married in 1950, and didn’t take up art again until her 40s, when she started her landscape painting career. She is well known in Melbourne for her beautiful watercolour landscapes as Hazel Gedye….but this exhibition focuses on her early work.
Drop in for a trip down memory lane. If you enjoyed the movie: The Dressmaker, like art, portraiture, fashion or historical memorabilia, you will love this. Works are NOT for sale, but inquiries can be forwarded to Margaret, the daughter of Hazel, and the Curator of this exhibition c/- email@example.com
Glass creations by glass artist Sally Walker are also on display in the library foyer. They are colorful and whimsical, and a delight for the eyes. These works are for sale.
