ART QUILTS LOWELL 2011: The Sea
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 13, 3 - 5 pm (during the Lowell Quilt Festival)
Art Quilts Lowell is an annual, juried exhibition of the finest art quilts in Canada and the United States.
Today, quilts are finally overcoming their old-fashioned reputation. Once perceived as blocklike, follow-the-rules fabric sandwiches, contemporary art quilts — with the emphasis on art — break the conventional code.
The concept for this year's Art Quilts Lowell is The Sea and there is a remarkable breadth of interpretation and materials by 31 artists from all over the US and Canada.
