Description

The Clay Intersections education kit explores the inspiration, influences, techniques and aesthetic concerns behind the work of some of Australia's leading ceramic artists. The information provided presents teachers and students with background knowledge that should assist them in building a greater understanding of the artists' work and the expressive possibilities of ceramics. The questions, research and making activities will support students to develop their own projects and create awareness of the artists' methods.

Clay Intersections is an ADC On Tour national touring exhibition, first presented by Australian Design Centre in 2016.

Australian Design Centre is supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments. Australian Design Centre is assisted by the New South Wales Government through Create NSW, and the Australian government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

​The Tamworth Regional Gallery is renowned for its Tamworth Textile Triennial.

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 their textile collection, as many works are purchased for the Tamworth Regional Gallery's permanent collection.

Open House: 3rd Tamworth Textile Triennial clearly connects Tamworth Regional Gallery to that past, while also consolidating the gallery's identity and engagement with its community today. Included in the exhibition are both nationally acclaimed and local textile artists, some of whom initiated the inaugural textile exhibitions in Tamworth.

This third triennial is an opportunity to build on the rich cultural history and reputation established by the preceding biennials and triennials, while creating meaningful audience engagement by stimulating new conversations about who we are and where we come from. Open House: 3rd Tamworth Textile Triennial provides an opportunity to tell important national narratives, to deliver work of significance, selected from across the country, and to continue this important story.

 

The Tamworth Regional Gallery has developed an extensive Education Kit that is available for Open House Education Kit.

The Tamworth Regional Gallery has also developed a Children's Art Trail for use in the exhibition space and this is designed for children and families to better understand and experience Open House: 3rd Tamworth Textile Triennial. Download the Children's Art Trail here.
