Nancy Bergman: Somewhere in the Sky

During the day, we look at the beautiful sky and see its changes, wondering what’s out there.

The circle is found everywhere in nature and dominates our lives. When we view the sky, we see the circles of the moon, sun, planets and stars. Ancient cultures used the circle to note the way that time and the seasons passed in a cyclical way. This selection of quilts symbolizes the sky and its mysteries during a twenty-four hour period.

In the series, we see the sky in the early morning, at noon and in the early evening hours.  Overnight, we view our closest neighbour, the moon, and travel through our solar system and finally into outer space.


Nancy Bergman has experimented with a number of art forms, from weaving to painting. She found that creating works with fabric was the most satisfying and adopted the art quilt as her preferred method for self-expression.

Nancy’s work has been juried in both national and international shows, and has been displayed in numerous invitational shows in both Canada and the United States. She has received recognition and awards for her textile artworks.
