Working with Golden Textures Exhibition

I am the curator for Golden Textures Art Quilt Exhibition run in Maryborough biennially, the show for 2015 has just closed. We were able to exhibit 28 works by 23 artists which have been admired by the many visitors drawn to our town for this event. The Acquisitive Prize which is sponsored by the Central Goldfields Council was won by Ruth de Vos for Banksia Spill.

Now I will be working on getting works back to the artists (a few days of frequent visits to the Post Office), and organising the next showing of Golden Textures which is at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham UK in August 2015. It is very exciting to be able to show a selection from our exhibitions to an international audience, and only shows how credible the works of Australian quilts artists are.

In the meantime I have started another quilt in traditional format but anything but a traditional colour scheme. More on this next time!!
