It features artists from around the globe. The small scale (20 x 20 x 20cm) allows artists to experiment with complex, intricate techniques and use delicate and ephemeral materials. The selection of textiles on display demonstrates a diversity of techniques and fascinating artistic solutions. Toured by Warwick Art Gallery

15 June – The Drover’s Wife. 10:00am - 11:50am. Cowra Civic Centre. Tickets $14. A reworking of the 1892 Henry Lawson short story, The Drover’s Wife is a subversive directorial and writing debut by Leah Purcell, who stars as the legendary Molly Johnson. On an isolated farm in the alpine country of the Snowy Mountains, the heavily pregnant Molly and her young children are struggling to survive in the absence of her drover husband. When an Indigenous fugitive, Yadaka (Rob Collins) arrives on her property, Molly initially meets him with hostility. Gradually, Yadaka proves helpful in challenging situations, and seems to provide a link to Molly’s past, uncovering brutal truths and secrets which must be confronted.
