Opening Tonight!

'The girl who rode imaginary horses (or) The mute swan', an exhibition by Maria Sirpis opens tonight, 19th Oct at 6pm.

The gallery is filled with intricate, whimsical stitched artworks that explore the stories both light and dark, imagined and real that we weave into our lives.

The whole space of the gallery becomes a cocoon of innocence, a child's bedroom that envelopes these stories, a safe space that is sometimes intruded upon by darker experiences.

Maria's works in this exhibition include stitched text, images, soft sculptures and installations. The exhibition runs for two weeks at Synergy Gallery 253High St Northcote.
