The Triennial, held every three years, showcases the best of textile art from across the country, attracting artist participation from all states in Australia, wide audiences and critical review. The Triennial also assists to continue the development of our textile collection, as many works are purchased for the Tamworth Regional Gallery’s permanent collection.

The 5th Tamworth Textile Triennial builds on the tradition of the Tamworth Fibre Textile exhibitions which first began in 1973, showcasing 50 years of contemporary textile artists. There are few events in Australia that can demonstrate such a strong tradition of promoting and sustaining the unique cultural heritage associated with both the history and technology of textile practice.

The 5th Tamworth Textile Triennial will be curated by Carol McGregor an artist, curator, educator who lives and works in Meanjin (Brisbane).
