Presentation Ceremony for Evolution, Change, Challenge - A Contemporary Quilt this afternoon.

The presentation ceremony of the "Evolution, Change, Challenge - A Contemporary Quilt" exhibition today at The Hazelhurst Gallery was very well attended by many Guild members, past presidents, sponsors, Gallery director and staff, exhibitors and visitors. Guest speaker was Carolyn Sullivan, Guild life member, fibre artist and teacher, who gave her insights into the "Contemporary Quilt" and its development over the past 20 years.

Winner of the $1,500 prize for best quilt was Denise Sargo for "Shadow Leopard". Denise gave a very gracious acceptance speech.
The Viewers' Choice award will be announced at the conclusion of the exhibition. A big thank you to Bob James and Gail Sadleir who were instrumental in getting the exhibition organised.

The last day of the exhibition is Tuesday 8th September 2015, so make sure you come along to view it, along with the "Labours of Love - Australian Quilts from 1850 to 2015" quilt exhibition.
