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.

Hi, Look forward to seeing your photos of the Textile Exhibition. My 17 year old daughter, Adrienne, had work selected this year and we were unable to attend (live on the Gold Coast).
We have asked the gallery to post some photos on their web site, but haven't had a response yet. Her work was a pack of small dogs called 'Wanderlust". Did you have work entered? Was your fence work 2009 entry or this years? We would have loved to see all the work entered or even had a list of Artists so we could see what sort of work they do. Found your blog when searching for Wangaratta Textile.
