This exhibition was regionally selected, curated, invitation only survey of contemporary Wiradjuri indigenous basketmaking which included non-aboriginal regional artists works. The original creative visual-art works were selected by Curators of the Wagga Art Gallery ' Linda Elliott and Melanie Evans on the basis of the work proposed and an artist's research statement. The inclusion of the work in the exhibition contributes to the field of Australian textile art as part of a re-emergence of traditional Wiradjuri basketmaking practices as a key aspect of the strengthening of Wiradjuri cultural identity and contemporary re-engagement with traditional practices toward reconciliation.
