The Janome Fine Art Textiles Award exhibition will be on display at The Festival of Quilts in July/August 2021 (alongside the exhibition from 2020). The organisers also plan to present the exhibition at The Knitting & Stitching Shows in London and Harrogate.
The Fine Art Textiles Award recognises the creative talents and skills of a broad community of high-calibre artists, including quilters, and celebrates textiles’ rightful place amongst high art. The selected works represent the spectrum of textile media, with works that transcend the craft or making process, and which stand alone as visual art.
Following a break in 2020 when we were unable to showcase the shortlisted FATA pieces, we look forward to having two gallery exhibitions this year celebrating the Fine Art Textiles Award for both 2020 and 2021.
