Open House: Tamworth Textile Triennial celebrates the open-ended nature of textiles practice today. All of the artists’ works are linked with things outside of themselves and their studios.
Many celebrate the sense of belonging that comes from working with other artists, while others take on wide-ranging issues, such as the landscape and the environment and the artist’s place in a world beset by environmental, social and cultural upheaval.
Featuring: Sally Blake, John Brooks, Gomeroi gaaynggal ArtsHealth Program, GhostNets Australia, Treahna Hamm, Joy Ivill, Carol McGregor, Rebecca Mayo, Noongar Doll Makers Community Arts Network, Raquel Ormella, Julia Robinson, Ema Shin, Jeanette Stock and Meredith Woolnough.
Guest-curated by Glenn Barkley.
This exhibition has been developed and toured by Tamworth Regional Gallery and is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians
