Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Australian Textile Arts & Surface Design Association, the exhibition, A Touch of Gold, explores artist's concepts of the theme. Intriguing use of fibre and mixed media define this contemporary display of expressive textile wall hangings, 3D objects and wearable art which all reveal a physical 'touch of gold'.

Working with diverse art practices, techniques and materials, sixty ATASDA members have created a rich tapestry of textile artworks employing fibre, weaving, felting, dyeing, printing, traditional and contemporary embroidery, and stitch techniques. Some historic pieces by renowned Australian textile art practitioners are included in this celebratory exhibition.
