Quiltmaking & Memory Making
Curated by Laura Hopper – Opening September 2021
This year’s online exhibit, “Warm Remembrances: Quiltmaking and Memory Making,” explores our memories and how we preserve them in fabric. How do we consciously or unconsciously choose what to remember? How is our collective memory shaped by the past? How are the forgotten events of the past preserved in art?
Featuring quilts from:
Bib & Tucker Sew-Op • Gwen Edwards • Zak Foster • Susa Harris • Laura Hartrich • Sylvia Hernandez • The collection of the International Quilt Museum • Susan Hudson • Heather Kinion • Jean Ray Laury • Carol Mesimer • Heidi Parkes • The collection of Julie Silber • Sherri Lynn Wood • Carina Yepez • and more
Access to the exhibit is available to all Quilters Take a Moment attendees. Not a ticketholder yet? Learn more about the event and sign up here.
This fully virtual exhibit will feature individual pages for each quilt that are simple to navigate and contain more information than we could ever present in person, and provide an even more lush educational and entertaining experience for our expanded virtual audience. Each quilt will have an accompanying Go Tell It! interview from the quilt maker, owner, or curator.
