Embroidered Portraits at AntiSocial Gallery

Very cool art show going on in AntiSocial Gallery- a tiny gallery space in the back of the Main St Skateboard shop. Cathy Tipping started embroidering portraits of people she knew when she grew bored of following craft kit needlepoint patterns, which were of Australian landscapes.  She made her own templates using Photoshop filters, and matching skin tones to wool she had at home.
