Members may be interested in this exhibition, opening today. The Q exhibition space in Queanbeyan is hosting an exhibition of art quilts by Yvonne Line.

Join the artist for refreshments on Saturday 2 June at 11am

Yvonne Line is an International Award Winning Art Quilter who has been exploring the use of textiles in various forms since her mid-teens. Over many years, Yvonne’s focus has been on presenting art work as layered textiles, using remnants and recycled textiles and re-inventing them into a new form.  That which is discarded and seemingly useless, stir her imagination and form her pallet. Yvonne was a founding member of Quilt NSW and is current President of Ozquilt Network Inc. Australia’s premier art quilt organisation and a member of Macarthur Textile Network.
Australia – A Land of Contrasts is an exhibition showcasing Yvonne’s broad wealth of talent and experience working with textiles and portrays her interpretations and narratives of our wide brown land.
Floor talk by the artist every Thurs, Fri & Sat 11am & 2pm during the exhibition
