JUBILATION: Diamonds & Pearls | Summer at The Johnston Collection

1 Dec 2020 – 23 Feb 2021

This year as part of our continuing ‘inspired by’ series, Alison Cole and Yvonne Walton have co-curated JUBILATION, featuring works from members of The Embroiderers Guild, Victoria.

The co-curators have hand-picked some impressive contributions from Guild embroiderers who have exhibited work from over fifteen years or so of Christmas exhibitions at The Johnston Collection.

JUBILATION | Diamonds & Pearls will feature works by members from among the 11 Branches and one Country Group of The Embroiderers Guild, Victoria. These will be seen along with works from the Guild’s collection of textiles from Australia and abroad collected over some sixty years and an array of new works made especially for our annual ‘inspired by’ show.

Join us as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Embroiderers Guild, Victoria, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the public opening of Fairhall.

The Johnston Collection encourages challenges to traditional making, thinking, and practice, through contemporary responses to the Collection, along with more traditional responses that reflect historical techniques, materials, and making.
