Quilt Art 20 – An exhibition to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the founding of Quilt Art. A book/catalogue produced for this occasion shows examples of each members work (current members at the time of the printing), both recent in the form of one or more quilts from the show as well as earlier work.
About Quilt Art 20:
'The Quilt Art group's international membership results in work ranging from responses to time, place and politics to formal explorations of colour, rhythm and process. What unites them is a self-assurance in what they do.' Dr Susan Marks, Selvedge, 2007.
'Diversity has always proved one of the group's greatest strengths, through makers' selection and employment of new and traditional techniques and materials and, of equal significance, their individual cultural heritages.' Collins Gallery, Glasgow, 2005.
'The Quilt Art group ... has selectively absorbed relevant concerns from the wider textile and fine art context.' Dr Stepahnie Brown, Textile Perspectives, 2005.
