‘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.
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.
Quilt Art mounts travelling exhibitions every two or three years in Britain and Europe, each one accompanied by a book which is written, illustrated and published by the members. The group has also exhibited in the United States, Canada, Japan and Russia.
‘’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.
Quilt Art is an educational charity.
