‘Unfolding Stories 3’ An exhibition of contemporary art quilts

Harbour House Centre for Arts and Yoga Kingsbridge, Devon 27th April to 3rd May 2018

A treasured First Communion dress, transformed with stitch; textile fragments, dyed in seawater on an uninhabited Scottish island; and plastic marine debris stitched into cloth are just 3 of the exciting new contemporary quilts being exhibited by members of the dynamic group, Contemporary Quilters West.

"Unfolding Stories 3" opens on Friday April 27, at the Harbour House Centre for Arts and Yoga in Kingsbridge, Devon. Over twenty of their members will be exhibiting their work, including several renowned international award winners.

Many of the artists are inspired by the environment and the local landscape. Each artist tells their own unfolding story. Textiles used in unusual and innovative ways make for a provocative show.

Chair of the group, Stephanie Crawford, says, "CQ West is a group of 25 individuals who came together five years ago, with the aim of supporting and encouraging each other in our individual working practice. We have a wide variety of artistic skills in contemporary quilting and textiles but have a common ground in that stitch forms a part of our work.”

The exhibition opens on April 27th 2018 with a chance to meet many of the artists during the opening view between 11am and 2pm, and closes on May 3rd.

The gallery, Harbour House Centre for Arts and Yoga, The Promenade, Kingsbridge, TQ7 1JD is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
