Quilt Art: Material Evidence & Traces   •   various locations
January 11, 2020 - November 20, 2022
More Info

An exhibition of new work 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.
