The Friends of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery cordially invite you to an evening of Pattern Play. This is an exhibition that will delight all ages. Whether you’re 8 or 80, you can create your own colourful patterns that twirl, reflect and tesselate.
Apart from the hands-on activities, TMAG staff have put together wonderful displays of patterns in nature — ferns, fur, shells, and the famous Bornemissza beetles. Dr Catherine Byrne, TMAG Senior Curator of Zoology, and Andy Baird, TMAG Acting Deputy Director, Audience Engagement, will be coming along to tell you all about it.
We see this as a great opportunity to offer Friends an engaging family event. We invite you to bring along your children, your grandchildren, your nephews or nieces. There’s no charge for children to attend in the company of an adult, but please let us know names and ages for catering purposes.
And finally, it’s also a chance to get your best patterned clothes out of the wardrobe and join the colour explosion that is Pattern Play!
