We are installing the touring exhibition, 'Sensorial Loop: 1st Tamworth Textile Triennial' with our team. Pam Brown from Tamworth Regional Art Gallery visited Ararat to guide the installation of some fascinating and complex textile fibre works. Sydney artist Michelle Elliott was also with us installing her extraordinary work, 'hemispheres, drawn to you, still' (2011). This is the final presentation of this Tamworth Regional Gallery touring exhibition. We hope to see you this Saturday 17 August 2013 at 2pm for the exhibition opening. 'Sensorial Loop' will be opened by the curator Patrick Snelling, Program Director, School of Fashion and Textiles, RMIT University, Brunswick campus. Pam, Michelle and Sandra McMahon, Director of Tamworth Regional Art Gallery will also be in attendance together with some of the represented artists.
