THE ART OF QUILTING
On View April 19 through June 14, 2019
Six talented and creative artists will have their pieces on display. Each brings a different technique and design, ranging from modern to traditional, along with mixed media and 3D objects. The featured artists include Dianne Kane, CarolAnne Olson, Judith Phelps, Mary Kay Price, Linda Reinert, and Hedda Wright who exhibit together as The Storytellers. The group was formed to continue the tradition of creating quilts that present visual stories, whether personal or universal. The quilts on display are a selection of works from past projects and educate the public that quilting is a form of art!
Patrons will explore the diverse techniques and artistry reflected in contemporary quilting through a journey of color and inspiration. The show will include First Friday Receptions on May 3 and June 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. which include bites to eat, beverages, and talking with the artists.
“This show presents the diverse nature of these artists based on their experiences, imagery, and ideas. Their narratives bring out the social and cultural activity of sharing stories for purposes of entertainment, education, or cultural preservation. The show appeals to all ages and will be a wonderful way to educate the public on this unique media,” remarks Stephanie Johnson, Public Art and Program Manager.
