The BSW Gallery is a new venture in improving the visibility of woven tapestry as an art form … currently the only gallery in the UK which provides an opportunity to focus on this medium alone. … The artists represented in “4 Australian Tapestry Weavers” are all based in Melbourne. … Most of the work in the show is miniature, a feasible strategy for participating in an exhibition on the other side of the world. … Through their chosen medium their voices and intentions speak clearly in the gallery space. The exhibition has balance and rhythm, representing the strength of woven tapestry, this portable and potent art form, in a worldwide context.
