Tracy Crisp – Pearls: Unstitched Threads of Love

Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery is delighted to showcase, Tracy Crisp Pearls: Unstitched Threads of Love, a deeply personal exploration of the bonds between mothers and daughters, the power of love, and the transformative nature of art. By repurposing her wedding dress as a canvas for the script of her show ‘Pearls,’ Crisp weaves together her mother’s legacy and her own artistic expression. The exhibition, held at The Vivienne Crisp Gallery, named after the artist’s mother, invites visitors to reflect on their own relationships with their mothers and the enduring strength of familial bonds. Accompanied by essays as well as video and audio clips, the exhibition delves into themes of grief, love, and artistic creation. Tracy Crisp Pearls: Unstitched Threads of Love honours Crisp’s mother, celebrates storytelling, and offers a space for contemplation, empathy, and healing.Open Monday to Friday 9-5pm, Saturday Sunday and public holidays 10-2pm Exhibition closes Sunday 10th September.
