'Voices Plus' until 13th October
Waterside Arts Centre, Sale.
An exhibition from the International Quilt Art group, showcasing new work by members from the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Hungary, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and USA.
The exhibition shows a wide range of work which really extends the boundaries of quilting. Some pieces use more traditional techniques of quilting but extend these by using combinations of print, stitch and collage. Others barely use quilting and incorporate applique layering and even paint to create textures and different surface qualities.
Content and scale vary from large, more heavily stitched hung pieces to a delicate 3D fan construction which lies in relief on a plinth.
A delightful variety of work of a high technical standard coupled with creative use of materials and ideas.
Highly recommended. Sue.
