Quinary is a group of artists brought together by their love of textiles and the enjoyment of making textile art. The group began as a support mechanism whilst studying for a textile degree and continued to exhibit and explore after graduating in 2012. Past exhibitions include; Canada, Germany, Stroud , Knitting & Stitching Show, Olympia and Edinburgh and Festival of Quilts 2016.
The members exhibiting here are: Marilyn Hall, Caroline Hibbs, Jean Kirk and Kay Swancutt, with guest artist Sue Flood.
The group provides a trusted platform for constructive critique which encourages each artist to develop their practice and stretch themselves to the edge and beyond their comfort zones. As we discussed this we realised that it would be a good starting point for our next body of work. It became fitting to use ‘Edges’ as the title for this exhibition.
Each member of the group has taken this original starting point and interpreted it in her own way.
We hope you enjoy our exhibition and that viewing it enhances your experience of Textile Art. If you would like to keep in touch with our work and future exhibitions please visit our blog:- www.quinary12.wordpress.com
