Top 10

If you visit Ararat Regional Art Gallery in November 2013 you can help curate the exhibition, ‘Top 10: The People Curate the Permanent Collection’. A book presenting photographs of textile and fibre artworks from the permanent collection will be available for you to peruse. You can select your three favourite works and make a comment which could end up on a panel in the exhibition.

The ten artworks which receive the most votes will be exhibited to provide an historical context for appreciating the ‘Recent Acquisitions’ exhibition. There are some iconic works in the collection which are enduring in their popularity, but it will be interesting to see which ‘dark horses’ make the final cut. We hope you can be part of this exciting experiment! We’ll also be posting photos on our Facebook page, and we’d love you to join the conversation.

Last week we hosted a group of tapestry weavers (pictured), led by gallery advisory committee member Debbie Herd, who visited our current exhibitions and had access to the permanent collection. The ladies all cast their votes for the 'Top 10' exhibition. Photo: Wendy Stevens
