Tactile

A selection of contemporary textile art from the permanent collection of the Wangaratta Art Gallery.

Over the past five years Wangaratta Art Gallery has significantly expanded its collection with a focus on collecting contemporary Australian textile art forms and delivering a textiles program of National significance.

This program has been enhanced by the biennial Wangaratta Contemporary Textiles Award. This award not only pays homage to town’s strong historical connection to the textile industry, but has also successfully established itself as a nationally significant textiles award and collection.
