Official Opening of 'Adorned: Textiles and Jewellery from Central Asia'

I thought that I would share some photos from the opening of 'Adorned: Textiles and Jewellery from Central Asia'
The exhibition, comprising over sixty  works, explores textiles and jewellery from Central Asia through the distinctive traditions of two of the largest cultural groups of the region, the Uzbek and Turkmen peoples. Urban Uzbek mercantile communities were based in market towns along the Silk Road, and the nomadic Turkmen peoples lived on the steppes of Central Asia.
 Fine examples of Ikat weaving.
Beautiful examples of children's clothes.
The exhibition includes many intricate pieces of jewelry.
Gorgeous colour combinations.
The exhibition was officially opened by Isobel Crombie, Assistant Director of the National Gallery of Victoria.
 Ararat Regional Art Gallery Director Anthony Camm speaking about the collaboration between the two galleries which made this incredible exhibition possible. 
'Adorned: Textiles and Jewellery from Central Asia' continues until July 17th.
