Regeneration: Contemporary Quilt Textiles 2012
Manly Art Gallery and Museum 27 April - 4 June 2012
A collaboration between The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc. and Manly Art Gallery and Museum
The New Quilt exhibition has been hosted by Manly Art Gallery and Museum for the past twenty years (see Background Information about the history of this exhibition). For the twenty first yeas, it was agreed that a new vision for the exhibition be achieved. To this end, a decision was made to have a curated, themed exhibition with specific, visual selection criteria as the basis of being accepted into the exhibition.
Regeneration will be open free to the public from 27 April to 4 June 2012 at the Manly Art Gallery & Museum at West Esplanade Reserve, Manly. The gallery overlooks Sydney Harbour and is close to Manly's famed beaches.
Congratulations to the successful artists:
Jody Abel (VIC), Mirjam Aigner (NSW), Anna Brown (NSW), Jan Clark (NSW), Sue Cunningham (VIC), Amanda Daly (NSW), Ruth de Vos (WA), Dianne Firth (ACT), Brenda Gael Smith (NSW), Judy Hooworth (NSW), Alison Levingston (NSW), Gloria Muddle (NSW), Alison Muir (NSW), Judy Nikoleski (NSW), Kylie Ramsay (NSW), Greg Somerville (NSW), Joanne Steele (NSW), Carolyn Sullivan (NSW), Antonia Valentine (NSW).
The exhibition showcases some of the best work to be seen in the
art quilt world. It will be an opportunity, not only see the finished artwork, but in most
cases, to also see the processes used by the artists to achieve their vision and response to the
theme ‘Regeneration’, via individual display boxes. This will include the artists’ sources of inspiration, photos, sketches, samples of fabrics and techniques.
