The Kate Derum Award and Irene Davies Emerging Artist Award for Small Tapestries 2019
Held every two years by the Australian Tapestry Workshop, (ATW) these unique awards celebrate creativity and excellence in contemporary tapestry, and are the most prestigious small tapestry awards in Australasia.
The Kate Derum Award for Small Tapestries honours Kate Derum and her significant contribution to tapestry as a weaver, teacher, mentor and former deputy director/studio manager of the ATW. Generously supported by Susan Morgan, the award is open to all professional Australian and International tapestry artists. The Irene Davies Emerging Artist Award for Small Tapestries was established to support early-career weavers in the first five years of their tapestry practice. Alayne and Alan Davies generously support the award, in memory of their mother Irene Davies, a tapestry enthusiast and avid supporter of the ATW. Opening celebration and award announcement Tuesday 16 July, 6pm.
