The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky will be featuring the works of Marianne Burr along with those of modern quilter Denyse Schmidt in a dual exhibition entitled Two Approaches: Now and the Future of Quilting.
Between October 11, 2013 and January 14, 2014 there will be an opportunity to enjoy Marianne’s sophisticated use of traditional hand stitching and see how Denyse’s interpretation of traditional quilt patterns has inspired a new movement in the quilting world.
Besides the obvious contrast in the styles of these artists, a similarity comes through as both approaches have historic roots but are uniquely individual.
Marianne and Denyse both plan to be present at the Museum Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19.
