Mysterium: Members Exhibition 2013
This wonderful diverse exhibition of 86 works by 66 WAFTA members was on show until Gallery Central, 12 Aberdeen St, Perth during October and November 2013
Why Mysterium? The word “mystery” comes from a Latin word “misterium” which meant craft guild. In mediaeval craft guilds mastercraftsmen initiated apprentices into the mysteries of their craft. The mediaeval “mystery plays” were so called because there were originally performed and produced by the craft guilds.
WAFTA members have creatively applied mastery of their craft to explore mysteries of nature, personal relationships, contemporary culture, outer space and numinous.
