Jenny Bowker, Dianne Firth, Helen Gray, Beth Miller and Beth and
Trevor Reid have been friends and fellow art quilters for some time
and all live in the Australian Capital Territory. Five of the group
of six had worked together in Twisted, a travelling exhibition curated
by Dijanne Cevaal.
It was decided to form a group working in Canberra so that an exhibition
could be set up with a large collaborative piece as a important
element of the exhibition.
The name of the group, tACTile, was decided to give an impression
of the touch of textile, while incorporating the fact that we all
live in the ACT. It also, incidentally, alluded to the tiled grid
of our first collaborative piece.
We are currently in the planning process for the next exhibition.
