Exquisite textile works on display in Wangaratta
AN exhibition featuring some of the finest contemporary textile art being created in Australia today is now on display at the Wangaratta Art Gallery.
The Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award 2015 features the work of the 47 finalists who were selected for their exceptional skills, original concepts and techniques and finishes.
The works vary in size, materials, colour and technique and demonstrate the variety of artistic expression possible within the world of textile and fibre art.
The Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award 2015 is open to the public and will be on display at the gallery until July 26.
Also on display at the gallery is an exhibition of 25 exquisite and finely woven, small-scale landscape tapestries by textile artist Cresside Collette.
The works on display in Gallery 2 celebrate the artist’s decade long journey of refining a method of tapestry weaving inspired by the impressionist tradition of painting outdoors in the open air, or “en plein air”.
The exhibition will be open until June 28 with entry by gold coin donation.
