This exhibition of new work celebrates the adventurous spirit and rich heritage of women who make art through the medium of fabric and stitch.
Though many of the artists take quiltmaking techniques as their starting point, their work is extremely diverse and does not necessarily conform to the traditional definition of a quilt. Each artist is free to 'follow the thread' in her own way.
This is the first exhibition mounted by the 16 artists in Quilt Art since the pandemic. The exhibition will be accompanied by a book featuring the artworks and giving an insight into the working processes of each artist.


About Quilt Art

The first group of its kind in Europe, Quilt Art was founded in Britain in 1985 to develop the quilt as an artistic medium and promote its recognition as an art form. Its members are leading practitioners who exhibit nationally and internationally. Many have won major awards and been selected into prestigious exhibitions. Their work has been acquired by public institutions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Arts & Design in New York and The International Quilt Museum in Nebraska as well as by numerous private collectors. Many of the artists are well-known teachers, lecturers and authors.

Most of the artists base their work on the quilt as a cultural artefact with its unique aesthetic qualities and distinctive history, but the interpretation is individual to each artist. Some experiment with paint, dye and print, unusual materials or three dimensions. Some work at the cutting edge of technology, using digitally programmed embroidery or photographic techniques. Others confine themselves to fabric and thread, feeling that their expressive potential is far from exhausted. All are united by their passion for fabric, stitch, colour and texture and the limitless creative and expressive possibilities of the textile surface.

Quilt Art responds to the challenge of keeping the work fresh and innovative by maintaining a small but rigorously selected membership and by its international membership. The members come from Britain, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Denmark and the United States.

Quilt Art mounts travelling exhibitions every two or three years in Britain and Europe and has also exhibited in the United States, Canada, Japan and Russia.
