The Fabric Collage Quilts of Susan Carlson -  New England Quilt Musem  •   Lowell, Massachusetts
September 26, 2018 - December 30, 2018

The New England Quilt Museum is proud to present The Fabric Collage Quilts of Susan Carlson, a retrospective spanning three decades in the evolution of this internationally recognized artist. Renowned for her intricate “fabric collage” technique, Carlson’s subjects include portraits, birds, insects, fish and a twenty-foot crocodile. She paints with fabric, choosing just the right prints to effect feathers, foliage, coral reefs, pink-cheeked children and mythological figures streaming across the cosmos. Carlson sometimes shades her work with layers of translucent fabrics, then completes the piece with free-motion quilting.

​This exhibition of 32 works selected by the Museum’s Binney Curator is sure to delight viewers with its abundance of color, texture and imagery.

Reception: October 20, 2018 at 1pm
