Curators John E. Vollmer and Caroline Langill for Art Gallery of Peterborough
Dorothy Caldwell is a distinguished textile artist, quilt maker and winner of the Saidye Bronfman award. Field Notes consists of pieced fabric constructions which combine stitched, dyed and painted cloth. Caldwell’s compositions blend abstract formal qualities with references to rural Ontario landscape. The ten quilts in this exhibition were inspired by a 19th-century “utility” quilt in the Royal Ontario Museum collection.
An illustrated catalogue, with essays by John E.Vollmer and Caroline Langill, accompanied the exhibition.
