This exhibition features the work of fourteen artists working in an assemblage of at least three layers of fiber and/or mixed media, formally and traditionally defined by the term "quilt". These dynamic contemporary artists take a quilting tradition and amp it up, using 21st century materials, a jolt of color, and a conceptual twist - transforming it into a unexpectedly fresh and vibrant new medium. This exhibition highlights the expansion of the boundaries of quilt making.
