Australia Wide Two @ Bunbury Regional Art Galleries

We made an afternoon/evening trip to Bunbury yesterday, in connection with the installation of 'Australia Wide Two' at the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries.

Here's a little blurb about the exhibition: 
Australia Wide Two is an exhibition of stitched and layered works showcasing original and diverse interpretations of contemporary textile art from Australia’s leading and emerging quilt artists.  Ozquilt Network is Australia’s national organisation of art quilters founded in 1998 to promote contemporary quiltmaking in Australia.  A professionally selected exhibition of members’ work, Australia Wide Two will excite viewers with the inifinite possibilities of ‘the quilt’ in art. 

The exhibition will be on display at BRAG from 13 April to 20 May and is comprised of 32 small (40cm by 40cm) art quilts by members of Ozquilt. Western Australian artists featured in this exhibition include Michele Eastwood, Margery Goodall (who was one of the curators), the late Joan Lock, and myself. Although the works are small, it is a real treat to view them in-real-life.
