Liz Williamson: Textiles

Liz Williamson’s solo exhibition

Living Treasures series, Object Gallery, Surry Hills (2008 – 2011)

Liz Williamson: Textiles, a solo exhibition of the textile artist’s oeuvre, toured nationally from 2008 to 2011 as part of Object Gallery’s Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series. The series acknowledges outstanding contributions to Australian art, craft and design by living practitioners, and celebrates their work with a nationally touring exhibition program. Liz’s thirty-year contribution to the field of textile research, education and advocacy for the arts was publicly recognised by the award.

As part of the Living Treasures award a monograph titled Liz Williamson: Textiles by Dr Grace Cochrane was published, documenting Williamson’s life, career, research and textile practice.

Liz Williamson: Textiles coincided with the release of a book by Dr Grace Cochrane of the same name, which similarly documents the artist’s life, career and her textile work.
