Art Quilt Australia 2013: People, Place & Nation

AQA2013catalogueFrom 1 November to 14 December 2013, Art Quilt Australia: people, place and nation was exhibited at Craft ACT Craft and Design Centre.

43 entries were received from new as well as established textile artists. Artists were anonymous and selection was made on the basis of digital images although information on materials, techniques and concept was also provided. The high quality of work submitted representing a wide range of approaches to the definition of a “quilt” made the decision a difficult one and Valerie Kirk, the curator and selector for the exhibition, finally chose 20 works to make a cohesive exhibition on the theme “People, Place and Nation“.

Congratulations to Trish Alcorn, Sue Cunningham, Sue Dennis, Dianne Firth, Pamela Fitzsimons, Jan Frazer, Helen Gray, Jessica Ipkendanz, Marion Matthews, Gloria Muddle, Alison Muir, John Parkes, Marianne Penberthy, Sharron Shalekoff, Brenda Gael Smith, Carolyn Sullivan and Deborah Weir who have had their work selected for Art Quilt Australia 2013: People, Place and Nation.
