Fragments exhibition

About this project

Fragments is a new series of work inspired by quilts and their histories made specifically for the summer exhibition at Minerva Art Centre, Llanidloes, Wales until 16th September 2017. The exhibition includes other related works too. The new pieces for this exhibition in textile and paper have been developed following research into the collections of the Quilt Association and building on years of considering antique textiles and the stories they hold.
