Australia Wide Six – Ozquilt Network
12 February – 9 March 2019
Australia Wide Six is a juried exhibition showcasing the work of Ozquilt Network members. Featuring 39 miniature quilts by artists from all around Australia, this survey of contemporary art quilts features something for everyone.
At just 40 x 40 cm, each quilt is a miniature marvel of textile techniques and is a must see for art lovers and quilters alike. Viewers will be delighted as they get up close to these tiny masterpieces, which push the boundaries of traditional quilting techniques including piecing, dying, embroidery, applique and hand and machine quilting.
The Ozquilt network exists to raise the profile and status of art quilters and art quilts in Australia and Australia Wide Six provides a taste to audiences of this rich and diverse medium. Entries are sought from all over Australia, and once the final selections have been made, the works spend up to two years travelling the country, bringing them to new audiences for all Australians to enjoy. The presentation of this exhibition at the Q is supported by Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council.
