Golden Textures Exhibition

Biennial Contemporary Quilt Exhibition
Central Goldfields Art Gallery, Neill Street, Maryborough, Victoria

 The Old Fire Station, built in 1861, is the Gallery
The standard of the 2017 Golden Textures exhibition is no different with Jenny Bacon commenting:

Many have chosen subjects that relate to Australia’s landforms, landscape and geological history. Some have chosen to depict our unique flora and fauna, thus continuing this interest of Australian women artists which has continued since Colonial times. Interestingly, this year several have chosen the theory of waves and flow as their inspiration.  As usual the use of colour is exceptional, and some are daring to come off the wall, making three dimensional pieces. It promises to be an exciting exhibition'.

 An exhibition well worth driving up to see.
 Maryborough has many beautiful old buildings in the main street.
 Leadlight window of Coleman Bros is now a KFC shop.
It gave me the impression that it may have been a butcher shop.

 The Bull and Mouth Hotel, 1904.

Intrigued with these monkey's hanging in the jewellery shop.


  1. Love the library building with an Everyman and Shakespeare, trying to be a little more grand than it's size.

  2. Good to know it is worth seeing, as I am planning to go up on Thursday at this stage.

  3. I am looking forward to going to see this exhibition, too. The one 2 years ago was well worth the trip.
