Third Drawer Down in collaboration with Arts Projects Australia and supported by The National Gallery of Victoria present AUSTRALIANA, a collection of functional art products devoted to monumental Australian icons, landscapes, and pop-culture legends. Paying homage to the kitsch Australian souvenir, the collection sings our anthem via tea towels, a pot holder, cooler bag, stubby holder and much more.
The Australiana Patches are all animal designs pulled from Peter Ben's Untitled artwork, also available as a linen Tea Towel. Perfectly Australian ironed onto a plain t-shirt or hat. The Magpie is fuzzy and flocked.
About Arts Project Australia
Arts Project Australia has aimed high since 1974 when they set out to lead and innovate in the arts and disability sectors. Since then, the quality of our exhibitions and artwork created in our studio has flourished, fed by a range of innovative programs and activities. They were the first full-time art studio in Australia for artists with an intellectual disability and have built a reputation both in Australia and internationally for our achievements on this front. They have been included in exhibitions all over the world and are represented in countless public and private collections.
