Quilt Art is a group of 20 professional quilt artists from Britain, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands and America. There are two Irish members in this group: Allie Kay and Ann Fahy from Galway.
In 2010 the group celebrates its 25th anniversary with two exhibitions "Quilt Art at 25" and "A slice of Quilt Art" which was recently at the Festival of Quilts in Bermingham.
"A Slice of Quilt Art" will come to Ireland, The Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely from April 30th to May 27th, 2011. Mark that date in your diary and you won't be disappointed!
