A new exhibit recently opened at the New Britain Museum of American Art, Let Me Quilt One More Day, showcases a history of the artistic practices, reinterpretations, and innovations of quilting.
Curated by Dr. Douglas Hyland, this exhibit brings together an extraordinary selection of over 40 historical and contemporary quilts ranging from traditional to modern designs and demonstrating both the practical application and artistic range found in this medium.
The exhibition contains works from the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, Mattatuck Museum, New Haven Museum and Historical Society, Fenimore Art Museum, Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum, and Connecticut Historical Society. In addition they have works by contemporary quilters: Barbara Barrick McKie, Richard Killeaney, Todd Knopke, Norma Schlager, Denyse Schmidt, Marlene Shea, Kate Themel, Anna Tufankjian, and Victoria Findlay Wolfe along with works from the collections of others.
The exhibit runs through Jan. 4, 2015.
