The Cad Factory, Western Riverina Arts and the Spencer Family are delighted to
announce that Hilary Peterson from Pambula, on Yuin country in the South
Coast, has been awarded the 2021 Joyce Spencer Textiles Fellowship.
Hilary has been a practicing artists for over 20 years, painting, drawing, printing, dyeing and stitching. Starting out as a textile designer, she made a move in 2002 towards creative practice combining her textiles knowledge with deeper philosophical concerns around our inter-connectivity to the landscape and place.
“I am thrilled to be the recipient of the Joyce Spencer Textile Fellowship and grateful for
her bequest that will allow me the time to produce a cohesive body of textile work that
also expresses my wider environmental concerns and interest in wetlands. I am inspired
by Joyce’s creativity, commitment to innovation and sharing through teaching and hope
to further her legacy,” reflected Hilary.
The Joyce Spencer Fellowship supports textile artists in regional NSW in the development and presentation of new work. The $4000 fellowship will be used for Hilary to present a new exhibition in 2022 at the Spiral Gallery, Bega.
