This exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of the Manhattan Quilters Guild, celebrating the signature styles of their 21 members. What began as a small group of strangers responding to an ad in Quilters Newsletter Magazine — novice quilters sitting around a dining room table — has progressed into a select group of established artists who continue to meet in Manhattan, NY. Their work, rooted in traditional craft, has evolved into fiber art forms that often go beyond quilts.
Like Manhattan itself, their membership is cosmopolitan and international. They bring their stories, skills, and diverse interests to the table. They work hard, share, and create, each maintaining a unique voice, even as they inspire one another.
Reception: Thursday, May 26, 2022 from 5pm – 7pm
