Discover historic war quilts at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery.
Not to be missed!! This stunning exhibition (a blockbuster exhibition just back from New York) is a unique showcase of spectacularly complex geometric quilts made from military fabrics by soldiers and military tailors in the time of war. Once termed “soldiers’ quilts” or “convalescent quilts,” the pieced textiles in this exhibition are associated with World War I and World War II as well as the earliest quilts from the Napoleonic wars, the late eighteenth century, conflicts in India, South Africa and wars during the nineteenth century.Find out more »
