The Quilt Association’s annual summer exhibition opens at the Minerva Arts Centre in Llanidloes on July 1, featuring three galleries of art, textile art and quilts.
The exhibition runs until Saturday, August 5 and opening times are Wednesday to Saturday, 10.30am to 4.30pm.
The main gallery this year houses a Retrospective Exhibition of the work of Welsh artist, textile artist and maker Annie Bielecka Jones who was born in Criccieth and the backdrop of Snowdonia continues to inspire her work.
Annie has shown at the Welsh Parliament /Senedd Exhibition of Welsh Women and War where her painting of ‘Grace’ was featured. Her bold, colourful paintings are on many themes and her art crosses the boundaries between fine and applied art.
In the last 15 years, she has found a new vision which brings together the two key elements in her art, textiles and colour.
The rear gallery and workroom feature two smaller exhibitions of quilts from The Quilt Association’s collection of more than 250 antique quilts.
‘A Load Of Old Flannel’ showcases some of the antique Welsh flannel quilts in the collection, many made using flannel from workshops and mills in the town.
‘Bright And Beautiful’ includes some of the trustees’ favourites, a mix of colourful patchwork and appliqué quilts using a variety of techniques, colours and fabrics.
