the new quilt 2008 is the 12th such collaboration between Manly Art Gallery & Museum and The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc and comprises 28 works which represent the innovation and diversity of quilt textile making today.

Works in the exhibition must meet the conventions of quilt-making (mostly of fibre and consist of at least two distinct layers stitched together). Using a dynamic range of materials and techniques the artists present diverse subject matter ranging from urbanisation, the environment, travel, families, illness and friendships to language and politics. A full colour catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
