Tamara Jelača exhibits her textiles at Number 8 in Pershore

A solo exhibition of Droitwich Arts Network member Tamara Jelača is now open at Number 8 Community Arts Centre in Pershore, and it will be opened until 7 March 2018. 

Multi-Media embroideries of ‘Faceless’ portraits of real and imagined people from all walks of life are challenging our perception. The public is invited to play and replace obvious conclusions with some alternative or invent the different backgrounds behind the portraits. Does the lack of facial features give us more freedom to understand people, or to limit us in our ability to know each other better?

Tamara Jelača graduated in textile design from the Faculty of Applied Arts and Design, University of Belgrade, Serbia. She works in a field of contemporary textiles and mixed-media visual arts, mail art and art books. She has taken part in over 70 group exhibitions and projects in Serbia and abroad (Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Sweden, France, Spain, Germany, Bolivia, Finland, Argentina, United Kingdom). She has exhibited her work in 9 solo exhibitions. Since 1996 she is a member of the Society of Applied Arts Artists and Designers of Serbia (ULUPUDS). She has also been a member of Droitwich Arts Network since 2014.

On the evening of Thursday 22 February, 7 pm, Tamara will be in the gallery to introduce herself and talk a bit about her art. On behalf of Number 8, Michael Amies, their trustee, will be a host of the evening. There are some information sheets available in the gallery and a visitor’s book.
