Aotearoa Quilters Taranaki
And Aotearoa Quilters’ travelling Suitcase Exhibition.
27 June – 19 July 2020
Aotearoa Quilters Taranaki are hosting an exhibition of work from more than 20 local members of the national association. Joining the exhibition are 20 selected ‘suitcase’ quilts from the National Quilting Symposium held in Auckland in October last year. The Suitcase Exhibition comprises small art quilts, approximately 50cm square. Most regions from throughout the country are represented.
Taranaki members have been working on two challenges for the exhibition; a Clarice Cliff challenge and another titled, ‘Structures’.
There are also a handful of larger bed-size quilts on display.
The exhibition demonstrate a wide variety of techniques and skills, both traditional and modern, in their art quilts.
Please enjoy details from a selection of quilts from all sections of the exhibition.
Maria Brockhill, clay artist
Maria’s vibrant highly glazed works in clay, both hand-moulded and wheel-thrown, are often heavily textured with vivid glazes. Many of her large works are sculptural in form, usually with a rugged or imprinted exterior.
She is also well-known for large commanding centrepiece bowls, waka and urns.
Maria finds inspiration in the rugged land and seascapes around Bell Block on the North Taranaki coast where she lives. Her work can be found in international collections.
