The crafty collaboration known as 4 Directions have welcomed a fifth member for their next exhibition at Wollombi Cultural Centre’s Old Fireshed Gallery.

This year’s exhibition will be titled Magnum Opus – meaning one special work, one created by each woman.

Knitter and book binder Kate Zimmerman has joined original 4 Directions members Jane Mowatt (spinner, dyer and knitter), Jenny Bain (quilter and knitter), Judy Waite (knitter and project designer) and Jen Quinn (knitter and quiller) for the group’s third exhibition at the Wollombi gallery.

Magnum Opus will open on Saturday, June 17 at 10am with a morning tea, complete with entertainment by The 4 Toons singers.

The exhibition will be open weekends until July 2 from 10am to 4pm.

In the meantime, Wollombi Cultural Centre’s latest exhibition – Intertwined by Morisset Spinners and Weavers – is open throughout the long weekend.

It features fabulous fibre works by 22 artists, including handwoven, knitted, crocheted and felted garments, scarves, wraps, bags, soft furnishings, handspun yarn and accessories. 

The cultural centre also hosts ongoing Aboriginal exhibitions in its Yengo Gallery, with visitors showing a great interest in the art, craft and artefacts and a video loop of a major local corroboree on display.
