Reminder: Regeneration Exhibition

Have you been to

The 2012 Contemporary Quilt Textile Exhibition : Regeneration
Currently on view at
Manly Art Gallery and Museum

This is a free exhibition that will be on view until 4 June, showcasing the Contemporary Art Quilts being created by members of the NSW Quilters' Guild as well as those from interstate textile artists.

Whilst finished works are highlighted, there will also be the artist's creative journey, for viewers to explore.
One of the delights of this exhibition will be the complementary inclusion of individual display boxes, creating an added visual explanation of the processes and inspiration that each of these textile artists were challenged by.

If you have often wondered "where did they come up with that?" then this holistic display will help viewers see how and why artworks are envisaged in their embryonic form and then created.
Floor talks by some of the exhibiting artists will be held on Sunday 13 May at 3pm and these will further the viewers knowledge of process and product.

Special Exhibition Tours are also being held, scheduled for Sunday 27 May and Sunday 3 June.

This exciting collaboration between The Quilters' Guild Of NSW and Manly Art Gallery and Museum has resulted from the desire to have a specially themed, curated and specific outcome exhibition, creating a challenge for any quilt and textile artist. Those who have been curated in to this exhibition have been working extremely hard to create their best work.

The theme of "Regeneration" is explored with varying fascinating responses, all works excelling in their attention to detail and effect and using a variety of techniques.

This promises to be a visually and intellectually creative adventure for all those who visit!

When : 27 April- 4 June 2012
Venue : Manly Art Gallery and Museum, Cnr West Esplanade and Commonwealth Pde, Manly

This venue is 4 minutes from Manly Wharf and Bus Interchange and close to cafes and shopping.

The Quilter's Guild of NSW and Manly Art Gallery and Museum are once again extremely grateful for, and thank Brother International (Australia) for their ongoing support of this unique exhibition.
