Now Showing in the Main Gallery
Four Corners features quilt artists from the four corners states: Arizona, Colorado, Utah,
and New Mexico. The exhibition opens with a reception on Saturday, June 8, 6-8pm.
The Four Corners unifies the cultures and territories of the southwestern United States, similar to the four corners of a quilt joining together layers of fabric. Quilts were considered a treasured commodity on the frontier, and throughout history different cultures have adopted the quilt as a form of utility and expression. Four Corners Quilt Exhibition is a study of how quilters choose to manipulate historic as well as modern techniques for a contemporary audience.
Four Corners Quilt Exhibition opens with a reception on Saturday, June 8, from 6-8pm. There will be performances by Canyon Movement Company, live music from Vincent Z., and a gallery talk with juror Ruth Garrision. The exhibition is open Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11am-5pm, from June 11 - July 20, 2013. Click here for more information.
Also, don't miss Fertile Eloquencia, a new ceramics exhibition by Alex Kraft, in our Jewel Gallery. Open times are the same as for Four Corners. Additionally, Kraft will give an Artist's Talk about her unique work and exhibition on Tuesday, June 18, at 7:00pm. The talk is free and open to the public. Click here for more information.
