Quilt | Grid | Pattern

Dr Christopher Harris introduces the forthcoming exhibition, Quilt | Grid | Pattern.

The exhibition features contemporary responses by Harris and fellow artist Kevin Laycock to the historic quilts in the Gawthorpe Textiles Collection. The formal qualities of the patchwork quilt: repetition, geometry, layering and interweaving pattern, provide inspiration for new work exploring patterning and geometric design.

Exhibition dates: 16 September 2023 – 24 February 2024
