Art Exhibit - 20 Years of Harmony - Stitches of a QUILTessential Sisterhood

  • Add to Trip [+]

The Nccu Art Museum is pleased to present the exhibition of extraordinary quilts by the African American Quilt Circle. With this exhibit the Museum aims to call attention to an extraordinary group of quilters, who are actually artists, whose handcrafted objects show a mastery of form and textures in applique and patchwork quilts.

These quilters employ both experimental and traditional techniques and sometimes summon a reevaluation of the definition of art. Their collective expressions in more than 60 quilts are so masterfully shaped and exhibit such unique expressions of their makers, that the aesthetic quality takes precedence over any functional purpose.
