Our 2020 Quilt show is over - 2021 coming!
If you wonder why, or maybe why, garden is a theme for a quilt show think metaphorally. Think of quilts being the visual representative o,f being maybe, Garden of our Dreams or Garden of our Lives.
Expanding this thought please think of Quilting as Planting Hope, Nurturing Life and Growing the Future. "After all a modern quilt, in every one of its three layers, serves many different purposes. It can preserve memories, comfort the healing, tell stories and can, for radicals, challenge ideas."says curator, Abby Chapple. In addition to being beautiful or spectcular, tradtitional or contemporary, made up of little boxes or abstract shapes they can cover the entire spectrum of every minute of our birth to death existence.
The Ice House is the perfect venue for this show at this time just as it was last year. The venue is a renovated vintage storage building and it is huge. This means there is plenty of room for the display of quilts and wide aisles many hallway for visitors to keep 6-feet apart. And of course masks are required and most likely will be in July.
More detail will be forthcoming soon......
