... public lecture that will cover fashion and textile preventive care.
Ararat Gallery is inviting the community to take part in a pilot project that is digitising its permanent collection.
Community members are invited to attend a public lecture that will cover fashion and textile preventive care with the National Gallery of Victoria tomorrow (Saturday, May 4).
Ararat Gallery, Textile Art Museum Australia (TAMA), was selected to take part in the innovative pilot project that will see up to 1200 items in its permanent collection digitally photographed.
In turn, the gallery's images will be uploaded to the Victorian Collections website for easier access to researchers, teachers and the general public.
The gallery team would love to see the public participate in the project by attending the lecture, from 2pm to 3pm at the gallery when National Gallery of Victoria's Skye Firth, senior conservator of textiles, and Ellen Doyle, textile display specialist, will present a 40-minute talk followed by a Q&A session.
Please RSVP for this session by calling the Gallery on 5355 0220 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This event is free of charge and will be held at Ararat Gallery TAMA, 82 Vincent Street.
