Art Quilt Network, formed by Nancy Crow and Linda Fowler in 1987, grew from a small core of highly creative artists to the present membership of over 50 active and life members from the United States and Canada. At semi-annual retreats members provide a supportive, non-competitive environment where ideas, information, and recent work are shared.

Members of the Art Quilt Network have been the recipients of international, national, state and local art grants and awards and have taught and exhibited throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

ARTISTSRESOURCES

  • My passion for Fiber began in college and I became immersed in quilting in 1993 when I took a class and created a beautiful jacket; I haven’t looked back since.

    Sandi Goldman

  • Like a child of mixed races, my work is a hybrid not necessarily at home or accepted by either culture. And for me, I think that feels better than being like the others.

    Susan Shie

  • Pat Owoc’s recent work has been of two types — botanical designs using disperse dye on polyester fabric and works reminiscent of the Kansas prairie of her childhood. There is an element of storytelling in most of Owoc’s work.

His recent collaborative work with artist Eleanor McCain was selected for inclusion in the Quilt National ‘13 exhibition and Quilt Visions Biennial 2014. In addition to his fabric business, Kevin teaches and lectures nationally.

  • I am a visual storyteller. I love stories, I love telling stories in a visual medium. I work in fabric because of the tactile and textural qualities inherent in cloth, and I do narratives because the story is a natural starting point for me.

    Kate Gorman

  • My current body of work is represented in three series, the Whole Series, the Fragments Series, and the Bits & Pieces Series, which combine comfortably with my passion for photography, the great outdoors and, of course, my love of fabric.

    Georgie Cline

  • My art is a reaction to my world and my experiences. Materials include cloth, paint, repurposed found objects and stitching. Layering, organic mark-making and line are prominent elements in my work.

    Deborah Fell

  • Like all of us my personal experiences are one of a kind. I bring that individuality to my art quilts. My quilts have appeared in many Quilt National and Quilt San Diego exhibitions and are in many corporate, museum and private collections. and art in public places.

  • Fabric is resilient. It can be dyed, bleached, painted, printed, burned, cut, frayed, glued, stitched, torn and mended. The word “fabricate” means to concoct, dream up, assemble and create.
