Pauline Burbidge @ The Bowes Museum

28 November 2015 - 10 April 2016

Quiltscapes & Quiltline features a collection of new work by this acclaimed textile artist, Pauline Burbidge, who is inspired by the beauty of the rural landscape around her home in the Scottish Borders, where she lives and works. Burbidge has been making quilts professionally for 40 years after studying fashion and textiles at St Martins Art College in London.  She has divided the work for this latest show, a selling exhibition, into two types: stunning textile landscapes, showing wall quilts (Quiltscapes) alongside original, functional and usable quilts (Quiltline). “Quiltscapes are like my paintings or collages, made exclusively as wall hangings, whereas the works I call Quiltline are functional, practical, and able to go in the washing machine!” she explained.
