Ararat Regional Regional Art Gallery's touring exhibition, 'About Time: Australian Studio Tapestry 1975-2005', is presented at the Bundoora Homestead Arts Centre until 16 April 2012. The exhibition was launched at Ararat Regional Art Gallery in August 2010 and has since toured to three regional galleries. This is the fifth and final presentation of the touring exhibition.

The exhibition has been expanded and re-designed in response to the various rooms that comprise the main exhibitions at Bundoora Homestead. Some recently donated drawings and samples by Kay Larence will occupy one room which focuses on the design of her 'House/Self' tapestry. Kate Derum's 'The Midnight Tapestry' is another addition to the show that will hang alongside its companion piece, 'In the Heat of the Moment' from the Ararat collection. The exhibition also has new text panels to connect the different rooms.
