Geri Patterson-Kutras' Quilt Is Going to be In a Museum

Geri, who was a recent guest on The Quilt Show, just learned that her quilt, Rainy Day Ballet, has been accepted to be in the de Young Fine Arts Museum’s Open 2023 in San Francisco, CA! Geri says, "I’m so honored and excited to be juried into this prestigious event that celebrates and supports the Bay Area Artists Community." There were 7700 submissions with 900 juried into the final exhibition.

What is the de Young Fine Arts Museum’s Open 2023?


"Building on the tremendous success of the inaugural The de Young Open in 2020, the second triennial of this juried community art exhibition will feature submissions by artists from the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. Artworks will be hung “salon style,” installed nearly edge to edge and floor to ceiling, maximizing the number of works displayed. Designed to celebrate and support our local arts communities, this exhibition allows artists to offer their works for sale and retain the proceeds. As in 2020, we will also acquire a selection of exhibition artworks for our permanent collection."
