TRACES
11 JAN - 15 MAR 2020

‘Traces’ is an exhibition of new work by Quilt Art on the broad themes of memory and the power of stitch.   It was inspired by the life and textile art of Mary Fogg, a founder member of the group and influential quilt artist, who died in 2016 at the age of 95.  Her graphic and ground-breaking work was well known for its use of colour and texture which she achieved by strip-piecing a wide variety of fabrics, often recycled, such as wool, silk and linen.

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 19 members are all leading practitioners who exhibit nationally and internationally. They come from Britain, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Denmark and the United States.

‘’Traces’ will be accompanied by a book featuring all the quilts on display, as well as the quilts from a parallel exhibition, Material Evidence, which opened at the Menier Gallery in London in June and will travel to venues in Britain and Europe.
