Another 1940's Avis Higgs textile design has been printed once again. The "Circles" print comes from Avis Higgs' time at STP (Silk and Textile Printers) in Sydney, Australia.
100% linen curtains featuring the design in a taupe colourway now hang in one of Avis Higgs' former residences (and was seen during the Wadestown House and Garden Tour recently).
A dress in the original navy fabric is included in a collection of Avis' textiles at MTG Hawkes Bay in Napier.
Nearly 70 years after it was designed, Avis Higgs' 'Heart of the Bush' has been printed onto fabric.
It has been printed as a short run on a trial basis. Chairs have been covered by Living Room (www.livingroom.co.nz) and look fantastic.
We will update as to future availability. Watch this space for further details.
In Memoriam, an exhibition honouring 5 artists no longer with us, including Avis, opened last night at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington.
The exhibition has been curated by James Harcourt and is shown alongside another exhibition, The Art Pack. Both exhibitions run till April 23rd 2017.
