A short distance from Cleveland lies Oberlin, Ohio, a charming college town, with a quaint town square filled with shops, restaurants, and museums. I recently visited an exhibit there, “The Artist as Quiltmaker XV” at FAVA (Firelands Association for the Visual Arts) in the historic New Union Center for the Arts, which runs through July 29, 2012.
The contemporary artist’s quilt exhibit was impressive, and the work diverse in its visual impact and creativity, subject matter, and in technique–using dyes, applique and multimedia, using stitching wizardry both by machine and by hand. The artists represented are from all over the country.
Enjoy these selected artist’s quilt images from the show:
