Helen Llewelyn - In The Spotlight - Quilt To Thrill

Throughout January textile artist Helen Llewelyn will be showing in our Spotlight Room that there are no ‘hang ups’ (!!) regarding the myth that quilts are too conventional, too stuffy, too conformist in her new exhibition “Quilt To Thrill”.

Inspired by a wide variety of subjects from landscape, historic buildings, abstract forms, stories and even a song, Helen Llewelyn has been exploring the huge possibilities of textile art for over twenty years and is still experimenting with colour, form and display, earning a first class honours degree and winning a national award along the way. The general perception of quilts as being something a bit staid still prevails, with the image of a patterned covering on grandma’s bed coming to mind. But quilt art is anything but sedate, formal, sober or unadventurous. The spotlight therefore is on quashing the myth with a great splash of colour; with shapes that conjure rhythmic movements and textures with that impetus to touch.
