International Expressions Quilt Art

For the first time in the United States, International Arts and Artists introduces the work of Quilt Art, a unique group of 22 contemporary quilt artists from nine countries whose work ranges from traditional quilting techniques to modern methods of photo transfer and improvisation. Quilt Art is Europe's leading advocacy group for innovative quilt making.

The "International Expressions" exhibition features more than 35 quilts that include landscape scenes, still lifes, geometric constructions and abstract juxtapositions of color and form. While each member brings a distinctive approach to the medium, a reflection of their home countries' culture, geography and design traditions can also be discovered in the work.

The Quilt Art group has established a reputation for being at the forefront of contemporary textile art by maintaining integrity of expression and quality craftsmanship. The group has exhibited extensively in Europe since 1987, and more recently in Japan and Canada. Included in this exhibition are works by Linda Colsh (Belgium) and Inge Huber (Germany).

The exhibition will be on display June 12 through August 28. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Admission for non-members is $5.
