Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award 2019
1 June – 11 August

This biennial nationally significant award has been presented by Wangaratta Art Gallery since 2009, and will again be a showcase of textile artistry and talent from across Australia. Wangaratta has a long and prominent history of textiles, both in manufacturing, its social history and as a craft form; Wangaratta Art Gallery builds upon this unique tradition through the presentation of this outstanding award which is guaranteed to appeal to everyone. Importantly the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award continues to present and attract the high calibre practice that Australian artists provide to the national and international textile tableau.

Karen Tapestries and Collages

The Karen are an ethnic minority group from Myanmar, with a rich weaving tradition. In 2010 an art group was established in Melbourne to teach the group collage making. The Karen are natural pattern makers and immediately adapted to this new way of working. In 2013 several women attended a tapestry workshop at the Australian Tapestry Workshop. This collection of work highlights the freedom of their vibrant, colourful collages reflected in their tapestries and demonstrates the joy they have found in their new home.
