Art Almanac: Bathurst Regional Art Gallery Tapestry Commission
By Art Almanac
NSW artist (and NAS alumnus) Luke Sciberras cut off from the loom the recently completed tapestry, Bridle Track, Hill End. The event took place on Tuesday 8 October, 10 am at the Australian Tapestry Workshop in South Melbourne; celebrating 50 years of fundraising by the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery Society (BRAGS). Designed by Sciberras, the commissioned tapestry was handwoven by Chris Cochius, Sue Batten, Amy Cornall, Pamela Joyce and Karlie Hawking; made from wool and cotton, and stretching 1.6 x 1.6m.
