Quilts will be on view throughout the St. George Art Museum from January 19th through May 11th, 2013.

Quilts evoke nostalgia, comfort, material stories, the palpable, the puffy.  Quilts are labors…now filled with sparkles, naturalism, even movement. 

This extraordinary exhibit is composed of a series of quilts inspired by photographs of area landscapes by Rob Lefkow.  Lefkow’s photographs will be exhibited next to the quilt.  Additionally there are quilts, that the Quilt Guild terms Challenge Quilts. 

The quilter, Sue Gilgen, will be featured in the Main Gallery.  The other master quilters are Karen Andrus, Janey Argyle, Charlotte Gary, Rosemary Hargrove, Carroll Lee Stolz, and Cathie Purdy.

Soup N’ Bowl Fundraiser March 1st, 2013 from 11 to 1:30pm
The Soup N’ Bowl is an annual event held for many years that raises funds for the Art Museum.  We thank the many ceramists who provide bowls and silent auction pieces and the many patrons who have participated year after year.  Begin or add to your art ceramics or bowl collection on the first day of March.  Enjoy lunch with friends and family and provide support for YOUR Art Museum.
