Mary Beth Bellah is an artist whose work continues to challenge the traditional understanding of what constitutes a quilt. Exhibiting widely in both national and international juried/invitational exhibits her work frequently involves a unique combination of cotton, wire, recycled elements and thread which may be free standing or wall mounted. Recent exhibits have included invited work at Ely Cathedral in Cambrigeshire, UK and Llangollen North Wales; Quilt National 2007 (OH) and Materials: Hard & Soft (TX).
