The New England Quilt Museum is proud to present, THE QUILTED CANVAS II, an exhibition of works from America's most innovative and influential contemporary quilt artists of the 1970s--Molly Upton, Susan Hoffman, Beth Gutcheon and Jeffrey Gutcheon. Rejecting traditional quilting patterns and motifs, these artists applied a fine arts perspective to their original quilt designs. Their work was groundbreaking in its complexity, graphic quality, and unique use of color that elevated quilt making to an art.
The NEQM is especially honored to welcome Susan Hoffman and Beth Gutcheon for an artist's talk and reception at the exhibition opening on Saturday, April 28 at 11 am. The artists will discuss the works on view and respond to questions from the audience. All are welcome. This public program is free to members and included in the price of admission for nonmembers.
