Evendale Cultural Arts Center Welcomes Stretching Tradition: Quilt & Fiber Art Exhibit

September 13-15, 2019

Stretching Tradition: Quilt and Fiber Art returns to the Evendale Cultural Arts Center with an opening reception on Friday, September 13 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm. Exhibit hours continue on Saturday, September 14 and Sunday, September 15 from 12 – 4 pm.

Returning for their 5th show, the Queen City Quilters will again bring their talents to the Evendale Cultural Arts Center with a display of original works that stretch the boundaries and take quilting and needle traditions in new artistic directions. Queen City Quilters was formed over 25 years ago to give its members the opportunity to explore new techniques, break a few rules and support each other’s growth as artists working with fiber and fabric as a medium. This year will introduce several new members who have added their skills and inspirations to the always exciting mix of traditional and contemporary quilts.

As in past years, the show will feature a display of imaginative hangings created to meet the definition of QCQ’s biannual challenge. Two years ago their theme was trees; this time each artist will be presenting her unique interpretation of a vase of flowers. The remainder of the gallery will be filled with a wide variety of large and small works of art by QCQ members, including Diane Glos, Barb Grothaus, Sue Paas, Pat Stratman, Zoe Enright and others. Some work will be available for sale. They have also promised to offer some delightful little raffle pieces; repeating a popular feature of past shows.
