Pmb Art: An exciting exhibition of embroideries opens in the Tatham Art Gallery’s Schreiner Gallery today at 6 pm running until August 3. On show will be the work of the Fancy Stitch Group from Ingwavuma — brilliantly coloured single-thread hand embroideries. Some are in the form of pictures or wall hangings, but others are made up into greeting cards, key rings, bookmarks and photograph frames. Their colours are brilliant and their stitches meticulous and while some are purely decorative, others tell stories of rural life. Gallery hours are 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesday to Sunday. On June 27 and 28, there will be members of the group as artists in residence at the gallery.
