FROM THE FRIENDS
An important role of the Friends is the provision of funds for the acquisition of works for the gallery collections.

Beth Hatton's work Imprint was purchased in 2013 by the Friends of Tamworth Regional Gallery for the Tamworth Fibre Textile Collection.

Through Imprint Hatton explores the effects of colonisation on native Australian species by marrying kangaroo off-cuts with wool. By weaving these two materials together, the audience considers the impact that introduced species of flora and fauna has on the native environment.

Over many years the Friends Acquisition Fund has made a significant contribution to the Gallery’s collection of works.
