‘Material Evidence’, an exhibition of new work by Quilt Art, takes as its theme memory and the power of stitch. 

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 18 members are all leading practitioners who exhibit nationally and internationally.  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. 

All the artists take as their starting point the quilt as a cultural artefact with its unique aesthetic qualities, but they are extremely diverse in their interpretation and the work does not necessarily conform to the traditional definition of a ‘quilt’.  

 

‘Material Evidence’ is inspired by the life and work of Mary Fogg, a founder member of the group and influential quilt artist, who died in 2016 at the age of 95.  

The exhibition will be accompanied by a book featuring all the exhibits.
