Toowoomba textile artists represented in Art Textile Biennale

Works by leading textile and fibre artists from Europe, the United States, Mexico, India, Japan and Singapore, in addition to two Toowoomba Region artists and fellow Australian entrants, are featured in the Art Textile Biennale 2020, which is on display at Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery until Sunday, May 30.

Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery is proud to host the inaugural Fibre Arts Australia travelling exhibition, which features 29 finalists from 16 countries, including Toowoomba Region artists and Darling Downs Textile Art Group members Hilary Fogerty and Barbara Stephenson.

Fibre Arts Australia directors Glenys Mann and Nonie Sutcliffe said the works selected for exhibition expanded on the traditional approaches of textiles and fibre and explored the dialogue about what it was to be a textile artist in the 21st Century.

“The finalists show a well-resolved concept, combined with exploratory and expert use of their chosen material,” the directors said.

“Viewers will be captivated and engaged by the rhythm of the maker and excellence that is exhibited.”
