In Dunedin I found that an Art Fibre Exhibition was currently showing at the Community Gallery and we both had a look. It was hugely interesting! I’ve headed this Food and Fibre because that’s what popped into my head… the artist I profile in this post had at least three food-related works on display. Today I’d like to show you this fabric book. Why this first? Because this morning Sharon Mann who has the WP blog “Make Art … Magic Happens” posted about a beautiful art book she’s making into which she’ll add “small watercolor paintings of California Wildflowers” and it prompted me to start my post with this art book that I saw at the exhibition.
How to Make an Expressionist Frittata by Susan Nunn (2014)
First, here’s the poster for the exhibition. I saw the poster at the public library.
The recipe book “has become a visual archive of natural dyeing recipes,…” NB. I’ve included an image of the full textual description further down in this post.
I guess the glove was so that one can look at other pages but I was keeping well away from all exhibits so that I wasn’t tempted to touch anything!

The group also has an interesting blog with further information
Update 26 Jan 2019: I’ve published three blog-posts that each describe a different work by Susan Nunn in the exhibition. Click on this link to see all three
