Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
