Works from the TAMA Collection

Exhibition and Shows

1 Apr 2023 to 3 Sep 2023 Daily Event

Ararat Gallery was established in 1968 as a few small rooms in the Old Municipal Offices of the Ararat Town Hall. Taking inspiration from Ararat’s historical association with fine merino wool production, they have been committed to exhibiting and collecting textile and fibre art since the 1970s.

They have over a thousand artworks and objects in their collection, including quilts, tapestries, baskets, embroideries, and weavings.

Over the last 55 years, the Gallery space has increased significantly, most recently during the Arts Precinct Redevelopment Project, completed in August 2018.

During that project, the Gallery doubled its exhibition and collection spaces, and in recognition of its significant textile collection was renamed Ararat Gallery TAMA – Textile Art Museum Australia.
