Quilt (R)Evolution: Art Quilt Retrospective 1979-2014

QR news release 2014quilt_revolution

September 20-November 22, 2014
Dairy Barn Arts Center
Athens, Ohio

Quilt (R)Evolution: Art Quilt Retrospective 1979-2014 will be the last exhibition of 2014 celebrating The Dairy Barn Arts Center’s 35th Anniversary and the 100th Birthday of the barn. The inspiration for this exhibition was both to span the evolution of the art quilt over the period of Quilt National (which was first presented in 1979) and provides the viewer with a look at what some of the most prestigious art quilters who have served as our jurors for the past 19 biennial exhibitions are producing today. The Dairy Barn Arts Center has contacted all of the artist jurors from the 19 biennial Quilt National exhibitions and asked them to loan us a selection of their work. The works will represent a selection from their earliest works, a work representative of their work for the period that they were asked to serve as the Quilt National Juror, and a current work. There have been 34 individual jurors who were quilt artists over the duration of the show and 28 jurors will be represented in the retrospective exhibition.
