Australian Bounty is an exhibition of 30 quilts by 30 of the top quilters from Australia. The works are all on the theme of the natural environment of Australia. The exhibition has been shown in France and Britain, as well as Australia.
Curated by renowned quilter Dijanne Cervaal, the exhibition features work that celebrates and depicts each artist’s feelings and reactions to the Australian landscape and its flora and fauna. Ms Cervaal says ‘We live in a land that has the magnificent gift of raw nature, of the earth offering many riches, of ancient heritage in which the Aboriginal people were the custodians of what this land offered... My hope is that these art quilts will create an awareness that the Bounty presented by this work is something that will be protected and preserved for the future.’
