CONTEMPORANEO - CONTEMPORARY -  The National Quilt Museum  •   Paducah, Kentucky
October 18, 2019 - January 28, 2020

A Joint Exhibit of Art Quilts from Brazil and the Contemporary Quilt Art Association. 

See the unique styles represented by the artists in these two diverse cultures displayed side-by-side.

For the past 9 years CQA has been sending art quilts to the Patchwork Design show in Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeria, Brazil to be exhibited side by side with Brazil quilt artists. This exhibit gives United States veiwers a chance to see Brazil and US art quilts side by side. The Brazil artsts over the years explored the abstract with emphasis on adding depth with embellishments. While CQA artists created mainly abstract art quilts in early years, they have started moving towards abstract realism often with very little physical depth.
