OutofhteBlueQuilts2015

Quilters, like all artists, tap their creative minds seeking inspiration for their work. Yet it's quite often that when they stop "thinking," ideas come to them...Out of the Blue. This exhibit celebrates the inspiration and new techniques that flow, when least expected, from this wellspring of creativity. 

Blue fabric is the most commonly purchased material for creating art quilts and this show certainly proves that to be true. Join us for this annual explosion of color, fabric and design.

Juror's Choice, the Whistler Award, and Viewer's Choice prizes will be announced during the opening reception.

Jurors:  Mary Walter & Jenny Gilbert

Exhibiting Artists: Deborah Babin, Betty Busby, Sandra Palmer Ciolino, Sue Colozzi, Nancy Crasco, Marcia DeCamp, Diane Franklin, Rita Hannafin, Lori Kay, Jill Kerttula, Cheryl Kessler, Mary-Ellen Latino, Valerie Maser-Flanagan, Wen Redmond, Stephanie Shore, Sarah Ann Smith, Bobbie Sullivan.
