I haven't really mentioned Through Our Hands much on this blog - not sure why!!
In case you don't know about it, it's a website for art quilters and museum/art gallery curators, and here's some blurb about why we exist.
The intention for the Through Our Hands series of exhibitions is to champion modern, artistic quilt making; to demonstrate what a thriving art form it is; to increase the awareness of art quilts and their concerns, and display how these are executed through a wonderful showcase of both quality of workmanship and design.
The selected exhibitors and participants in the Through our Hands exhibitions and on this website are amongst the foremost international artists. Many travel the world teaching methods of construction and design principles. They have written books, exhibited widely both at home and abroad, and are generally considered to be at the pinnacle of their field.
“When the flush of a new-born sun fell on Eden’s green and gold,
Our father Adam sat under the tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
Til the Devil whispered behind the leaves, “It’s pretty. But is it Art?
