Layered and stitched textiles have been a part of human history for thousands of years. “Beyond Tradition” includes work by 21st-century artists who pay homage to traditional forms of expression while taking the artwork to new levels through the use of unusual materials and techniques. The show will feature two-dimensional and three-dimensional work, and the Hubbard Museum will hold educational events.
All of the exhibiting artists are members of the New Mexico region of Studio Art Quilt Associates, an international, nonprofit organization with more than 3,100 members.
