Textile and Fiber Art in the 21st Century 

Art Scene Today is proud to feature textile and fiber art in our exhibition of A STITCH IN TIME Competition winners and finalists.

Most textile artists seem to come from either art school, or from embroidery/quilting groups, often inspired by family traditions. The UK has a vibrant and lively Embroiderers Guild with nationwide branches, as do the USA, Australia and others.  Members of these guilds make wonderful contemporary pieces, whilst others remain rooted in tradition.

War and Pieced: The Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics

American Folk Art Museum, NYC  |  September 6, 2017–January 7, 2018

Generally considered a female art form, War and Pieced is the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms. Once termed “soldiers’ quilts” or “convalescent quilts,” the pieced textiles are most closely associated with the Crimean War as well as conflicts in India, South Africa, and other troubled regions of the British Empire during the nineteenth century.  READ MORE...
