The work of Quilt National artists currently on view at the St. Louis University art museum is described as both “extraordinary” and “powerful” in two new articles from Splendid Magazine and the St. Louis University News.

Threads Worth Thinking About
The St. Louis University News published an article about Quilt National 2013 on September 25 entitled Quilted art: Threads worth thinking about. The author, Emily Drenovsky said:
“The internationally diverse quilters of Quilt National use their craftwork to make broad thought-provoking statements about the world. The show has the power to inspire students to make a difference on a local level with their own gifts and talents.”
Drenovsky’s article featured artwork by Sheila Frampton-Cooper and Cris Fee.
