Ararat Gallery TAMA



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, we have been committed to exhibiting and collecting textile and fibre art since the 1970s.

We are custodians of over a thousand artworks and objects, including quilts, tapestries, basketry, embroideries, sculpture 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.

This exhibition features work by John Corbett, Kate Derum, Merrill Dumbrell, Carolyn Dunn, Hannah Gartside, Jordan Marani, Belinda Ramson and Jemina Wyman.
