On September 6, the Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild exhibition will open as part of Ithaca Gallery Night. Please drop in between 5 and 8:00 pm to the Lifelong gallery to see the Modern Quilt Collection.
The Modern Guild is a group of local and not so local quilters who have moved away from traditional forms. Their work, like traditional quilting, is built around fabric, color, and design. But they venture into new territory, employing contemporary colors, improvisation, minimalism, unconventional scales, and other techniques that have expanded the range of this art form. Drop in to the gallery and see if the exhibit changes your idea of what quilting is.
If you can’t make the opening, the work will be up until late October.
