On Show at OSilas Gallery: 40 x 40 @ 40
OSilas Gallery is pleased to present 40 x 40 @ 40, a contemporary quilt art exhibition curated by The Manhattan Quilters Guild. 40 x 40 @ 40 features 19 exquisite quilts by 19 artists and celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Guild, a remarkable group of women who span a wide range of ages and are from different backgrounds and use different techniques.
The works featured in this exhibition, individually and collectively, show the strength of women’s work rooted in a traditional craft that has evolved into fiber art that goes beyond what is perceived as a quilt. Each artist created a large scale work measuring 40″ x 40″ in commemoration of the Guild’s 40th anniversary. In addition, the Guild has supplemented 40 x40 @ 40 with new works created specifically for the OSilas Gallery exhibition. The additional works are beautifully embellished facemasks created over the last year. 40 x 40 @ 40 will challenge your conceptions of what quilt art is and open your mind to the beauty and complexity that needle, thread and fabric can create.
View the virtual opening reception, featuring an exhibition overview by Randy Frost and panel discussion with Guild members.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday (Members Only) 12-5 pm / Thursday 12-7 pm / Friday 12-5 pm / Saturday 2-5 pm. All other times, by appointment by contacting Executive Director Elizabeth Vranka at email@example.com.
