Artist "on tour": Marianne Jäntschi

Artist "on tour": Marianne Jäntschi

One of our staunch supporters and very good friend, Marianne Jäntschi, is currently exhibiting her extraordinary work in Garching in the Greater Munich Area in Germany.

You will see quilts in Marianne's usual quirky style - "classical" quilts focusing on recycling and re-using fabric and always with a twist - and work including her latest passion, silk-screen printing.

Heidemarie Mönkemeyer - Artist "On Tour"!

Blaues Gemeinsames Quadrat FischerMönkemeyer

We're happy to announce a new exhibition of one of our longterm contributors and very good friend, Heidemarie Mönkemeyer: Together with her artist friend Helene Fischer, Heidemarie Mönkemeyer will present from May 31st until June 29th, 2017 a joint exhibition in Leer/Wismund in Northern Germany titled "Art Paths - Side by Side".

Heidemarie and Helene continue their successful cooperation and present again their different ways of working together. Also this time, generous large-size quilts on the one hand and  delicate miniatures on the other show the tension in the field of textile art and invite to discoveries.

The exhibition shows the artists' work of recent years comparing their indivdual artistic "handwriting" in their translations of the same themes.
