European Art Quilt Foundation “Grande Finale” 1 July – 3 September 2017
“The Historical Museum de Bevelanden in collaboration with the European Art Quilt Foundation has organised a unique exhibition of recent ART QUILTS and textile art of great variety from 18 European countries . The participants are all artists who have exhibited their work during the past 25 years in one of the eight European Art Quilt Foundation’s exhibitions. The exhibition is spread across all three floors of the building.
The objects on show concern high level textile art from all parts of Europe. Therefore the differences in culture, climate and tradition are clearly visible. The objects presented range from realism to abstract and from gentle to confrontational. It is a highly colourful exhibition showing two-dimensional work as well as three dimensional installations. With this exhibition the European Art Quilt Foundation certainly lives up to its objective of drawing attention to this form of ART.”

Pigment Landscape Coast 2017 – see photos on gallery sketchbook page
Edwardsville Art Centre (EAC) Illinois USA Sketchbook Show: 28 April – 19 May 2017
Katie Lochhead a second year MAF candidate from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville invited me to participate in the Sketchbook Exhibition she is curating having seen my 2010 sketchbook entry from the Sketchbook Project Brooklyn Library
It has been a great opportunity to create a book specifically for the show titled Pigment, Landscape Coast where I have worked through ideas that have accumulated from my recent work exploring the use of natural earth pigments.
Below is Katie’s introduction and outline for the exhibition that focuses on the role of the sketchbook.
“I have kept an active sketchbook for some years and am incredibly interested in the variety of ways in which sketchbooks not only prompt, but live alongside work. This show will look at the sketchbook not only as a means to make rough outlines for what larger work will look like, but as an independent, raw place to develop ideas, interests, and even “finished” pieces that exist only in this space.
