Material Evidence is an exhibition of textile art by current and former members of the pan-European group Quilt Art.


It celebrates the adventurous spirit and rich heritage of women who make art through stitching and is inspired by the life and work of Mary Fogg, a founder member of Quilt Art and pioneering textile artist, who died in 2016 at the age of 95. Fogg called her work “a celebration of cloth in all the wonderful variety available to us: colour, pattern, texture, flexibility, and the way it reflects light.”

Each featured artist takes a unique approach to Fogg’s legacy, presenting cutting-edge work which aims to transcend people’s ideas of what quilting can do. They are united by their passion for fabric, stitch, texture and colour, and the limitless creative possibilities of the textile surface.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a book featuring the artworks and giving an insight into the working processes of each artist.
