Lasting Impressions: Art Quilts 2016

LastingImpressions ArtQuilts2016 sizedExhibition:  August 13 - September 24, 2016
Reception: Saturday August 13 from 2 to 4 pm


All artists seek to make an impression on the viewer with their creations. For Lasting  Impressions, we asked quilters to take that sentiment a step further and use stamps, dye, stitching, and other techniques to make their fabrics as striking as their designs. With quilts comprised of at least 50% handmade fabrics, this eclectic exhibition showcases the breadth of technique and style that can be achieved through the quilter's manipulation of his or her medium.

Jurors:  Mary Walter & Wen Redmond

 Award Winners:

Whistler Award: Jill Kerttula, Fishy Fishy

Juror's Choice: Sarah Ann Smith, Bijagos Warrior

Juror's Choice: Betty Busby, Dendrite

People's Choice: Sarah Ann Smith, Bijagos Warrior

 

And in the Members Room, see Whistler in Quilts, an exhibition showcasing the results of Mary Walter's quilt class held in the Parker Gallery in May. This year, Walter chose a Whistler self-portrait as the subject, and eight of her students display their interpretations of his famous painting.
