Several members of Canberra Quilters will be showing quilts at Mandelson’s of Goulburn this weekend, 31 August and 1 September. These are the members of tACTile and the quilts are part of their recent exhibition, 100, at the Belconnen Arts Centre.
Claire Ayling, joint owner of Mandelson’s, is one of our sponsors through her Bali Batiks fabric business. Here is a message from Claire:
ICONIC EXHIBITION OF ART QUILTS
The tACTile group comprising Jenny Bowker, Dianne Firth, Helen Gray, Beth Miller, with Beth and Trevor Reid working in partnership, are well known throughout Australia and internationally for their innovative art quilts.
They created 100 art quilts to provide a range of perspectives on Canberra as people, place and designed city.
We are fortunate to have 64 of these magnificent art quilts on display in Mandelson’s Ballroom.
