Open House: Tamworth Textile Triennial
Open House: Tamworth Textile Triennial celebrates the open-ended nature of textiles practice today. All of the participant 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. Through the process of creating, talking and exhibiting, the artists join together with visitors as equal participants in an open house where all ideas and responses are welcome.

This exhibition has been developed 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.
Open weave is a selection of works by artists of the region working with textiles, wool, upcycled detritus, manmade and natural materials exclusively or as an adjunct medium. This micro show brings a local perspective to the theme of textiles at the gallery this summer.

HEARTS AND MINDS: Wartime Propaganda
An Australian War Memorial Touring Exhibition Propaganda has been used to influence audiences for as long as recorded history. By presenting facts selectively and using loaded language to provoke emotional reactions rather than rational responses, it seeks to promote the agenda of a particular group. Posters were an ideal means of communicating propaganda: impermanent yet public, they were designed to be noticed, and could be printed and distributed quickly in large numbers. The Australian War Memorial holds a large collection of wartime posters from government–issued campaign posters to handmade posters protesting the war in Vietnam. Hearts and minds: wartime propaganda introduces this collection, featuring home-front propaganda from the First and Second World Wars.

SCARS: Elisabeth Cummings Etchings
For over fifteen years, Cummings has made regular visits to the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, to work with Master printmaker Michael Kempson of Cicada Press. Cummings’ renowned mark making is perfectly suited to the printing process of etching. Her lines, grooves and indentations meld into the plate and accentuate her exquisite drafting and drawing abilities. The works presented here are a stunning example of the etchings created over an extended period of time at Cicada Press by a significant Australian abstract artist.
Open Tues – Sun 10am – 4pm. Closed Mon. Closed Public Holidays & for installation.
