Ian Berry showing at Carrefour Européen du Patchwork by Ian Berry

Europeen patchwork

Ian will show at the Carrefour Européen du Patchwork 2017 in Espace des Tisserands in Sainte-Marie-Aux-Mines in the Alsace region of France open on the 14 -17 September.

It will be a great chance for many people to see his work up close and personal as he makes very rare appearances, and his work needs to be seen to be truly understood.

Well into his second decade, Ian started from a different route to traditional Textile Art, and only in the last several years has the Textile Art World and Ian Berry crossed. He has been invited as a special guest to many events, and here now at the EPMshow he has taken the chance to show in this context. It will be a great chance for many Textile enthusiasts to see his work, which, often defies description.

While mainly a Quilting event, Ian is not a quilter but will follow in the footsteps of Fraser Smith, Birgitte Busk, Malin Lager and the tent makers of Cairo as being an invited non traditional quilter working with fiber art.

Ian will show his Behind Closed Doors body of work as well as the My Beautiful Launderette installation.

The 23rd European Patchwork meeting will open from Thursday, September 14 to Sunday, September 17, 2017 in the Val d'Argent, in the heart of Alsace

More than 20,000 visitors come every year to discover the art of patchwork in whatever form thanks to thirty exhibitions by internationally renowned artists. This event, of an original concept, has become a reference event in the field of traditional and contemporary patchwork and the art of quilt.

Some shots from Behind Closed Doors by Ian Berry

It may now be closed and most of the work now displayed Behind Closed Doors, but here we look back at some of the shots from what proved to be an amazingly successful show with the Catto Gallery. For those that were not able to get there, it will be good to see the way the work was displayed in the gallery setting with many installations set up to display the work.
