Ilma Savari - Eye of the Sun

Mon-Sat: 10-6pm

The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery is proud to announce, Eye of the Sun, which brings together a collection of painted and appliquéd barkcloths by Ömie artist, Ilma Savari. Eye of the Sun marks Savari's first exhibition at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery and follows in the wake of her triumph at the Royal Academy of Arts' Summer Exhibition earlier this year.

Ilma Savari (b.1969) is a member of the Ömie people, a group from the remote volcanic slopes of Mount Lamington in south-eastern Papua New Guinea. Despite being little known in PNG, the Ömie are globally renowned for their exquisite barkcloth - or tapa cloth - designs which grace prestigious international collections from London's British Museum to the National Museum of Victoria, Australia.
