The Fine Art of the Quilt


On View April 27 - June 2

Reception: Apr. 27, 5:30-7:30 pm
Quilting traditions have been part of the United States since the early colonies.  Mostly utilitarian rather than decorative, quilts were seen more as a craft than fine art.  That all shifted in the 1960’s due to the ground breaking work by Judy Chicago and her contemporaries, especially Mirian Shapiro, when quilting finally gained the reputation it deserved as a fine art.
Enjoy the work of nine talented quilters from the tri county region.  Each artist brings her own unique pattern and stitch to each work of art. Some of these quilts have a soft watercolor expression while others manifest bold color and abstract design
The Gift Show will feature quilted items made by these artists to tie in with the theme of the exhibit:
