Curated by Dunja Rmandic, curator of collections at Devonport Regional Gallery, the annual permanent collection exhibition will showcase the gallery’s Moon Collection of textiles. Acquired in the early 1980s, the collection of fine silk and lace garments, as well as christening gowns, attests to the beauty and sentimentality of cloth intended for both everyday use and formal occasions. Some of the collection will be shown for the first time.

Exhibition opens: 6pm Friday 27 June 2014
Exhibition closes: 10 August 2014
Location: Devonport Regional Gallery, 45-47 Stewart Street, Devonport TAS 7310
