Sarah Crowest - Material Constructs: THE Home Stretch

Presented in association with Ararat Gallery TAMA as part of Craft's Craft Forward series, Material Constructs: The Home Stretch features new work by Sarah crowEST, in response to two earlier textile artworks acquired from the artist in 1995 and 2013. A leader and innovator in textile art, crowEST's work operates in the gaps between geometric abstraction, hand-crafted apparel and the expanded field of 'painting'.

Craft Forward is a touring exhibition program that commissions a leading Victorian maker to partner with a significant regional gallery and develop a new body of work in response to works previously acquired by that gallery. Ararat Gallery TAMA has partnered with Sarah crowEST to develop an exhibition to launch a new purpose-built gallery devoted to textile art practice following a substantial redevelopment project. Craft is committed to delivering a meaningful touring program as part of its ongoing commitment to ensuring regional makers and audiences have access to high level craft and design. The exhibition will be supported by a public program of events.
