The Quilt as a Contemporary Tradition

A Stitch in Time:
The Quilt as a Contemporary Tradition   
Opening:  Saturday, October 25 (5 to 8 pm)  Open through November 23, 2014
 
Louise Kreifels   Sherri Lynn Wood   Alice McCain  
Our exhibit features three contemporary textile artists.  Each has a distinctive approach to quilt making, but each also has roots in the folk art tradition of the patch-work comfort zone, and the quilting bee.  Colorful, creative, environmentally friendly, functional, warm and cuddly, quilts are a transcendent art form, timeless and timely.

 

The show is an eye-pleasing homage to the tradition of quilt making, a joyful celebration of an evolving art form, and perhaps a hint of future possibilities and directions.

 

Open 4 to 7 pm Wednesday through Sunday, or appointment
Folk and Fine Art    1861-A Solano Avenue   Berkeley    94707    510 900-2591
 
If you are in the Bay Area join me at the opening this Saturday from 5-8PM for the opening reception! New Quilts from The Improv Handbook the will be on show.
