My work brings together a love of the natural world, its colour, pattern and   texture combining drawing, printing, painting, dyeing, fabric and stitch.  It  investigates the fragility and beauty of what I see.

 

Some works are for sale. Please contact me if you are interested. 

                                               

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.

The Fellowship will support Hilary to present a new exhibition in 2023 at the Spiral Gallery in Bega exploring the significance of the Panboola Wetland at Pambula. The exhibition research is combining ecology, history and artmaking to tell a complex story around place.​

Hilary has been a practicing artist for over twenty years combining painting, drawing, printing, dyeing and stitching. Her career began as a textile designer, and in 2002 she made the move into creative practice combining her textiles knowledge with deeper philosophical concerns around our inter-connectivity to the landscape and place. Hilary often uses natural dyeing in her work to attach what she is making to place, and fixing it within time.

“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.” ~ Hilary Peterson

The New Quilt 2021
Hawkesbury Regional Gallery
Windsor, New South Wales, Australia
February 5 - April 11, 2021

The New Quilt is a juried survey exhibition, showcasing the art of quilting, that reflects the richness and diversity of contemporary expressions of the quilt medium in Australia. The final selection is an opportunity to experience an amazing array of creativity and innovation from across quilting Australia. Visitors may find themselves redefining their perception of a quilt, beyond layering of materials, to that of an artwork full of aesthetic impact, technical skill, and powerful storytelling. This fascinating exhibition includes two-dimensional and three-dimensional sculptural works in a range of materials and styles, responding to many of the challenges we have faced in 2020 including bushfires and COVID-19, as well as environmental challenges, new life, revenge, and sheer joy! Not to be missed!
