ABSTRACT QUILTS IN COLOUR
THURSDAY 11 JULY 2013
7pm for 7.30pm
Quilts made in solids have an impressive history. They were the first quilts to be taken seriously as art. In 1971, Amish quilts from the collection of Jonathan Holstein and Gail van der Hoof constituted the first major museum exhibition of quilts shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art in
. New York
Using her new abstract quilts as examples, Gwen discusses her work in solids and points out some of the great characteristics inherent in solids.
Gwen's work in solids began with studies of Amish quilts and she has continued to work with solids over the past 3 decades. In this lecture Gwen talks about Amish quilts and how they have influenced her work. Gwen discusses her new abstract work in solids and points out some of the great characteristics inherent in solids. The lecture is illustrated with quilts from her book Ideas and Inspirations: Abstract Quilts in Solids.
