DESCRIPTION

Comprised of approximately forty objects, Milestones: Textiles of Transition seeks to facilitate conversation between traditional commemorative or utilitarian textiles (including historic baby and wedding quilts, and ethnographic works) and modern interpretations of these familiar experiences by contemporary artists. Patchwork and embroidered quilts, ceremonial textiles, as well as examples of crochet, embroidery, rug hooking, and soft sculpture, will inspire visitors to think about their own experiences in new ways. Artists featured include: Susan Else, Kate Kretz, Noel Palomo-Lovinski, Beverly Raynor, Linda Friedman Schmidt, Erica Spitzer Rasmussen, Wendeanne Ke’aka Stitt, Ruth Tabancay, and Diedre Scherer.

June 2: Members Walk-through 1pm to 2pm. Opening Reception 2pm to 4pm. Please RSVP to rsvp@sjquiltmuseum.org.
