Malliner’s eye for art
Tuesday, 3rd March, 2015
Nurhayani Malik has used her passion for millinery to make an exhibition of hats, hatinators and fascinators.
The artist is completing an artist-in-residence with the Broken Hill Art Exchange in Duff Street.
“This is my passion, I really enjoy making them and it gives me pleasure to do it,” Nurhayani said.
“I taught myself how to make hats - it took a lot of patience.”
She has been living in Broken Hill for the past five years, after moving from Jakarta, Indonesia.
“I really enjoy Broken Hill, it is a very good place for people with different talents.
“The Broken Hill Art Exchange also helps to foster those talents.”
Nurhayani will have a special preview of her work at the Broken Hill Art Exchange today at 5.30pm.
Then her works will go on show at two hair salons in Patton Street - the Tonic Hair Salon and the Hair Strand - until March 15.
“Everyone is welcome to come to the preview, including people who are interested in making hats or want to purchase them,” she said.
Nurhayani encouraged everyone to come and have a look.
“It is something unique and different, it was designed to be different,” she said.
