2019 Textile Palette Exhibition



The Red Door Gallery [on fraser] is proud to host the annual Textile Palette Exhibition, showcasing and celebrating the work of textile artists who live, work or are connected to Victoria.

The Red Door Gallery at https://www.reddoorgalleryonfraser.com is an accessible exhibition space for textile and fibre artists to exhibit and promote their work and welcomes expressions of interest to submit work for this unique annual event.

The 2019 Textile Palette Exhibition invites artists to ponder new challenges and possibilities. Through their work, artists may wish to comment on the environment and the natural world, conservation, religious faith or politics. Artwork(s) may be abstract, naïve or figurative and may include mixed media. Artists may refer to personal or life experiences or produce work that reflects on family, friends or people within our diverse community.  Work may include framed pieces, canvasses, soft furnishings, including art quilts and coverlets, wall hangings, furniture, fashion and accessories, sculpture and installations.

In order to keep this exhibition relevant and to maintain the promotion of contemporary work all artwork(s) must not have been exhibited before unless recent re-working has occurred.
