This year is the hundredth anniversary of WWI. Galleries all around the world are having exhibitions with memories of this war including many in Australia. Gallipoli (2015) is particularly significant as the Australian WWI memory.
Manly Art Gallery and Museum has taken the initiative to put on an exhibition of War Quilts. Although it’s the anniversary of WWI, it seemed a good excuse to show quilts from all wars. Quilts from many sources will be included which came here with the waves of immigration of peoples from all over the world . We aim to show these as well as quilts made here in Australia (which even include some made by mum from blackout fabric during the Japanese attack of Sydney.
