Solitude 1 by Millie Thomas
“Since becoming a member of Cwilt Cymru I have been inspired to enter more challenges and have been searching for appropriate themes that fit my interest in organic and naturally occurring environmental features. The quilt is based on the ancient rock strata of Ceibwr Bay in Moylegrove, Pembrokeshire and is approximately 26” x 12”. Ceibwr is a place I go to think, retreat from the world for a brief period when necessary and to find solace.”
Our new exhibition for 2014 is on the theme of Connection. It will include 20 contemporary art quilts by six Cwilt Cymru members (Judith Barker, Bethan M. Hughes, Dorothy Russell, Judy Stephens, Millie Thomas, Gwenda Williams) and four guest artists who have a connection with Wales (Jennie Durkin, Judy Fairless, Margaret Ramsay, and Sandra Wyman).
We are currently securing venues for the exhibition. If you would like to offer a venue for the exhibition please leave a comment on this site and we’ll get back to you.
