2017 Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award
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 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: local and regional residents and visitors alike. Importantly the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award continues to recognise the high calibre practice that Australian artists provide to the national and international textile tableau.
