European Art Quilts Grand Finale


Katriina Flensburg, Sweden

Olga and Simon Prins-Lukowski spent thousands of hours of their free time over the last 20 years or so to promote art quilt and textiles. This summer the last exhibition, a Grand Finale, takes place in Goes, The Netherlands. There are 143 quilts hanging, a delight for the eyes. There are also three "one person" exhibits inside, all worth the trip by themselves. They showcase the work of Olga Prins, of Anco Brouwers-Brandehorst and Willy Doreijers, both close and helpful members of the Foundation.
Here are a few pictures of some of the quilts. More details on Instagram, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
