Artists turn recycled fibre into art.
A group of six women who produce art from recycled fibres are represented in an exhibition at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum and Gallery. The group, calling itself ‘Fibregenics’, create art from fibres from a wide range of sources, including industrial waste, discarded clothes, textiles and found objects. The artists use traditional techniques such as embroidery, felt-making, bookmaking and printing, to transform and re-purpose these materials to create new works of art.
The six artists are: Cathy Marshall, Julie Wicks, Kerry Douglas, Leslie Lockwood, Raine Phillips and Margaret Slorach. They are all from the local area.

Artist Barbara Dawson's work explores a connection with place and the environment.
After living all her life in Canberra she now lives in Jervis Bay with it’s the ever-changing colours and backdrops. Barbara’s inspiration of place explores the beaches and shorelines of the bay, the forests of the National Parks or the mountains that are the skyline of Canberra. She has drawn on this inspiration for the collagraph prints and the oil drawings, using stitch in her work to add to the journey and her crossings over the land.

War at Sea
OPENS SATURDAY JULY 1ST 2017
One hundred years ago, on 14 September 1914, Australia’s first submarine AE1 disappeared while patrolling the seas near present day New Guinea. No trace of the vessel or its 35 hands has ever been found to this day.
The experiences of Australian sailors in World War I has largely been overshadowed by the stories of soldiers on the Western Front or at Gallipoli. This Australian National Maritime Museum traveling exhibition draws on the personal accounts of Navy servicemen – through their diaries, mementos, ship’s logs and letters home – to tell their incredible stories of bravery and sacrifice amidst the drudgery of life at sea, patrolling, blockading and escorting troopships.
