Quilts 20/20: Traditional WORKS, Contemporary Art

On view in the main gallery June 19 – August 30, 2015.

This exhibition of contemporary and historic quilts honors the traditional roots of the quilt, shown side by side with the art quilts by today’s cutting edge fiber artists. The design of the quilt, whether made in the nineteenth century or the twenty-first century, holds dynamic strength in color, form and line. The juxtaposition continues the dialog between the two worlds and furthers the research relating a traditional craft to what has become studio art.
