Beyond Boundaries, SDA EU+ UK Members’ Exhibition, Baarle Nassau, NL

Beyond Boundaries grew out of a May 2018 meeting of European SDA members in Tilburg (Netherlands). The exhibition was planned for two locations in May 2020, coinciding with the Textiel Festival in Leiden. Locations include Galerie Zone in Leiden and High Five Art in Baarle Nassau. Due to the Pandemic, both exhibitions had to be postponed until 2021, now opening on May 2, 2021. Leiden’s Galerie Zone exhibition runs until May 30, and High Five Art runs until August 22. Both galleries allow visitors by appointment. Leiden’s Textiel Festival has been postponed until 2022.  Beyond Boundaries will also be shown as an online exhibition on SDA’s website.

A three person jury selected works from 30 artists from ten countries, reflecting the variety of disciplines of each artist. The artwork is spread over both galleries and includes weaving, art quilting, mixed media, stitching, and shibori on fabric and leather. Jurors included Anne Mie Boonen, artist and lecturer at the Academy of Genk (Belgium); Helda Klouth, co-owner of High Five Art; and Karina van Vught, EU representative and owner of Zijdelings.

Exhibiting artists include Anneke Herrold, Cherilyn Martin, Flox den Hartog, Hannie van Weel, Helda Klouth, Mirjam Pet, Paulien van Asperen, Willy Doreleijers, Francisca Henneman, Marloes van Rees, all from the Netherlands; Jette Clover, Lia Flemings and Rita Trefois (Belgium); Beverly Ayling-Smith, Fenella Davies, Julieta Gimpel, Stewart Kelly, Yael David Cohen, and Katie Taylor (UK); Mel Bradley, Imelda Connolly (Ireland); Beatriz Schaaf-Giesser, Monika Sebert, Monika Haeussler (Germany); Mascha Mioni (Switzerland); Elinor Siegler, Michele Landel (France); Kissa Tindal (Denmark); Raija Jokinen (Finland); and Eszter Bornemisza (Hungary.)
