Ararat Gallery TAMA



Please join us for our 50th Birthday Party and opening celebration of our two permanent collection exhibitions, Fifty: Celebrating 50 Years of Collecting Fibre Art and Testament: Robert Salzer Foundation Acquisitions.

The half century milestone of the Ararat Gallery provides a moment to reflect on the importance of the TAMA collection. An extraordinary repository that tracks the development of textile and fibre based practice from the early 1970s through to today; a legacy elevating the TAMA collection to one of the most significant of its kind in Australia.

We will celebrate with fine fare, fine wine, music, a special birthday cake inspired by the permanent collection, guest speakers and of course all our wonderful gallery supporters and friends.

FREE ART BUSES have been chartered from Ballarat and Natimuk/Horsham so the greater region can join Ararat Gallery TAMA in celebrating its 50th birthday.  Locals are encouraged to tell their associates from these regions about the buses and to attend the opening of fifty with their friends and family.   Tickets include a glass of complimentary champagne.  Limited seats available. BOOK NOW by emailing: kpengelly@ararat.vic.gov.au
