Winner of the 2011 Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award
I got back today from Wangaratta (and the surrounding region for a weekend away), and thought I should at least reveal the winner of the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award for 2011. I have got a lot of photos to upload, but for now I'm happy to say that Patrick Snelling won the (I think) $5,000, acquisitive award for his piece 8.9. The judge was Valerie Kirk. She also selected 4 works for Honourable Mentions - work by Brook Morgan, Lucy Irvine, Elisa Markes-Young, and, Jennifer Bartholomew. I'll add photos of the show in the next few days.
Here's a picture of Patrick Snelling in front of his winning work:
