The Moree Quilters are known across New South Wales for their fine craftsmanship and finesse in design. Their biannual exhibitions at the Moree Plains Gallery attract big and enthusiastic audiences. The quilters have been working for 20 months towards this exhibition and have produced intriguing designs stitched with loving care.
In 2013 JamFactory celebrates 40 years of fostering and promoting contemporary craft and design in Australia with this landmark exhibition. JamFactory was established in 1973 by the South Australian Government under Premier Don Dunstan and the institution today remains a unique and iconic South Australian establishment.
The show is curated by Margaret Hancock Davis, Margot Osborne and Brian Parkes and presents new work by 40 selected artists, craftspeople and designers who have had a significant involvement with the JamFactory during its 40-year history and who are presently producing work of outstanding quality.
The exhibitors include alumni as well as past and present staff and studio tenants – from dynamic emerging talent through to some of the most established and recognised practitioners in Australia. Exhibitors include Frank Bauer, Stephen Bowers, Gareth Brown, Honor Freeman, Brenden Scott French, Christian Hall, Jim Hannon-Tan, Greg Healey, Kath Inglis, Takeshi Iue, Elizabeth Kelly and Bronwyn Kemp, Jeff Mincham, Nick Mount, Michelle Taylor and Prue Venables.
