Voices Plus - Quilt Art Exhibition

I almost missed this exhibition by the Quilt Art group, but just managed to squeeze in a visit on it's very last day at the Waterside Arts Centre in Sale. And what a beautiful exhibition it was with some very diverse work by an international group of quilt artists. In a statement they say that " The aim of the group is to extend the boundaries of quilting as an artistic medium and achieve wider recognition of the quilt as a contemporary art form". Here are some of my favourites.

Jette Clover




Yael David Cohen




Val Jackson




Mirjam Pet-Jacobs





And my absolute favourite was Elizabeth Brimelow.







Voices is a touring exhibition and has now moved to The Brindley in Runcorn.

  1. Great! That last one looks like a sketchbook full of experiments. Will try to catch it.

    1. The exhibition is well worth a look, I think the exhibition at The Brindley may be smaller because it is just called Voices and not Voices Plus, so it might be worth checking to see if the Elizabeth Brimelow pieces are there.
