Spring is here, and with it comes lots of opportunities to see Quilt National artists work on exhibit. Cindy Friedman, Director of ArtQuilt Elements wrote to let us know about ArtQuilt Elements 2014 at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA. ArtQuilts Elements 2014 is the 11the exhibition of this internationally acclaimed show and includes 43 quilts selected from over 600 entries.

“One of the distinctions of our show is our professional presentation of art quilts. The exhibition has been widely praised by reviewers and artists not only for exhibiting the quilts in a gallery setting but also for promoting the art quilt as an art form.”

Marianne Burr to be featured at National Quilt Museum

Ezekiel's Wheels by Marianne Burr

Ezekiel’s Wheels by Marianne Burr

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.
