Ozquilt Network: Australia Wide Seven

Intriguing Iridescence
by Zara Zannettino

Australia Wide Seven showcases the work of Ozquilt Network members from throughout Australia and overseas. The exhibition features 40 small artworks, each 40 x 40cm (16 x 16 inches).

These were selected by panel made up of recognized textile artists Sharon Peoples (ACT), Suzanne Gummow (SA) and Alsyn Midgelow-Marsden (NZ).

The works demonstrate the scope and variety of the ‘stitched and layered textile’ medium and address many different themes.

The Australia Wide exhibitions program is series of biennial exhibitions which tour galleries across Australia.

 


 

Untamed Abstraction by Sheila Frampton Cooper

Jungle Love by Sheila Frampton Cooper

When award-winning artist Sheila Frampton Cooper creates, she revels in the spontaneous. Her free-form process with its surprising twists and turns inevitably delivers her to a place of unfiltered originality where her bold work unapologetically commands attention.

 


 

 

New Quilts from an Old Favorite: Shakespeare 

Twelfe Night Vision by Laura Pomes

This international contest organized by The National Quilt Museum challenges quiltmakers to create an innovative quilt based on a specific traditional pattern. Winners of the contest traditionally include quilts from many different U.S. states and several other countries.

Quilts are selected for their excellence in design and techniques, their innovation, and their contributions to an exhibit showing the wide range of designs and styles the selected traditional pattern can inspire.
