This touring exhibition organized by the Muskegon Museum of Art & curated by Nancy Crow, showcases some of the best machine-piecing and quilting being done today. The quilts improvise around the Bull’s Eye pattern: a four quadrant design with a bull’s eye at the center of each quarter. Color and design become the focus of a dazzling array of quilts. The artists were challenged to create artworks that stretched the possibilities of the machine-pieced quilt and conveyed a sense of energy and excitement. Participating artists come from across the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa. The exhibition opened at the Muskegon Museum of Art in Michigan in August 2016.
In her talk, Nancy will cover three very important parts of her recent creative life. First, she will describe (with illustrations) the building of her brand new 2-story studio on her farm, a dream of 15 years finally come true. Second, Nancy will discuss curating Circular Abstractions: Bull's Eye Quilts (organized by the Muskegon Museum of Art) and show photos from classes where this exhibition originated. Third, she will present a brief survey of her own studio work.
This Curator's Talk is Sunday, April 2, 2pm.
