When Textiles Talk. A Quilting Exhibit

« Back to All Events

Event Details

July 8, 2015 @ 9:00 am August 28, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Free Event

This juried exhibition includes quilts from members of Rebecca’s Reel Quilt Guild in Middletown and the Beach Plum Quiltmakers of Ocean County.  Historically, quilts have been made to convey emotions, record events and to evoke memories; to greet or say good-bye; to sell or raffle for charity; to celebrate, to commemorate or to comfort.  The need to communicate requires quilters to express themselves for the same various reasons as other artists. Each quilt in this exhibit is accompanied by a story card explaining the artist’s vision or motivation.

Opening Reception:  Aug 1  | 5 – 7 PM
