New exhibitions: Material Evidence and Traces


Material Evidence and Traces


An exhibition of new work, Material Evidence, by Quilt Art starting in 2019 in the UK. It will then be touring and we are still working on the schedule.

This exhibition celebrates the adventurous spirit and rich heritage of women artists who make art through quilting and textiles, and in particular that of our pioneering and influential founder member Mary Fogg, who died in 2016 at the age of 95. Each member of the group will take a unique approach to her legacy to create exciting, cutting-edge work which aims to transcend people’s ideas of what a ‘quilt’ is.

A smaller related exhibition entitled Traces will also be available in 2019-20.

The exhibitions will be accompanied by a book showcasing all the works.

Dialogues and Small Talk


Dialogues and Small Talk are nearing the end of its tour. The book Dialouges and Small Talk is still available and celebrates the group's 30 years of existence and is the result of a collaboration between the British quilt historian and academic Dr Sue Marks and the members of the group. The texts are all written by Dr Marks, who was able to draw on her extensive knowledge of contemporary and historic quilting in her dialogues with the artists about their work, their thoughts about their work and working methods..
