Basil has been working in the screen printing workshop with Coleambally (NSW) artist, Kerri Weymouth, on a series of interpretations of the fashion design of her uncle, Ross Weymouth and his partner, John Claringbold, from the 1950s until recently. Many of their award-winning gowns will be on display in Griffith Regional Gallery from Saturday April 1 alongside Kerri’s twelve silkscreen prints. The gowns are part of the extensive Couture Collection held by the gallery. Kerri’s designs have been meticulously prepared by hand painting onto acetate sheets, exposing these onto silk screens and hand-printing them in Canberra. The prints are in very small editions of 10 and are her tribute to Ross and John’s careers in the fashion industry.
