Located in the heart of Ararat in the historic Town Hall building, Ararat Gallery TAMA (Textile Art Museum Australia) offers an exciting program of exhibitions across all areas of the visual arts. Established in 1968, the Gallery has a unique place amongst Australian public galleries through a longstanding commitment to supporting and promoting contemporary textile fibre art.

Permanent Collection

Specialising in textile fibre art, the collection is a rare and unique resource. Recent acquisitions of work by Starlie Geikie, Newell Harry, Kate Just, Yvonne Koolmatrie, Nalda Searles and Jenny Watson reveal the rich diversity of current fibre-focussed contemporary practice and foreshadow opportunities for the collection's development.
