Textures of One is an annual art exhibition established by Loretta Kervin, Cecily Walters, Kerryn Hughes and Toni Morrison in 2014. The exhibition has grown since its inception and now includes photography and two junior categories (primary & secondary) along with drawing, painting, sculpture, textiles and decorative.
Textures of One is unique as all artworks have to include a motif which is different each year. The name TEXTURES OF ONE was chosen as it is open to all categories hence many mediums, one motif. This is to challenge people to think outside the square and produce a unique, new piece for this very different exhibition. Not only has the number of entrants risen over the years, but the prize money has risen too with more entries coming from outside Blayney’s art community.
Opening night’s have become a major Blayney calendar event with over 200 people coming along to enjoy everything the artistic community has to offer. With local wines, local music, a few market stalls and the community getting together, it is not an event to miss. It has been exciting to see the Textures of One brand grow to become an event that everybody looks forward to.
Our aim is to provide an inclusive platform for all artists to display their work in a professional environment, and it is not without the support from Blayney Town Association PTY LTD, Blayney Shire Council, Dean Mobbs Gallery, local businesses/ community, artists, friends and family that we are able to achieve this. Here is to a wonderful 2020 exhibition, and hope to see you all there.
