This is an unusual event - textile exhibition
Textile art is something that you do not see every day! This function, however, is held every three years and now is the time for the Tamworth Textile Triennial.

At this event, they will showcase the best of textile art from right around Australia. This will attract many artists from all states.

This will be the third Tamworth Textile Triennial that has been curated by Glenn Barkley using an Open House theme. Open House: Tamworth Textile Triennial celebrates the "open-ended, porous nature of textiles" that is practised today. It will introduce a group of artists who have not previously exhibited in the triennial.

All of them are linked in some way to a sense of broader engagement with things outside of themselves and their studio. Many of these artists will celebrate that they belong and this comes from working with other artists. Others, however, will look into wide-ranging issues such as the landscape and the environment and the artist's place in a world encompassed by environmental, social and cultural difficulties.

All this will be brought together in an openness that comes about by exhibiting and creating. This can include both the artist and the person viewing it as equal participants. The making process is just as important as the works themselves. There are conversations which take place while creating and the showing creates an open house where all ideas and responses are welcome.

This has already started and will go on until 27th April 2019. It will be held at Artisan, 45 King Street, Bowen Hills from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm.

Some of the artists are:

Sally Blake
John Brooks
GhostNets Australia
Gomeroi gaaynggal, ArtsHealth Program
Treahna Hamm
Joy Ivill
Carol McGregor
Rebecca Mayo
Noongar Doll Makers, Community Arts Network

The exhibition is curated by Glenn Barkley.

This exhibition has been developed by the 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.

This exhibition is brought to you by Artisan. Artisan was started in 1970 to support craftspeople and designers. It is a not-for-profit organisation who share and celebrate Australian practitioners through regular exhibitions, events, workshops and the Artisan store.

You can visit their showrooms at 45 King St Bowen Hills. This is in the heart of the recently redeveloped Brisbane Showgrounds precinct.
