Foundry Art Centre: Friday, 10 July 2015

APRON STRINGS: TIES TO THE PAST AND SUM OF MANY PARTS: QUILTMAKERS IN CONTEMPORARY AMERICA

The exhibitions Apron Strings: Ties to the Past and The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America is open Friday, April 10, 2015 to Friday, July 10, 2015 at the Foundry Art Centre.

Apron Strings: Ties to the Past reviews the apron’s role as an emotionally charged vehicle for expression with a rich and varied craft history that is still viable today. The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America presents how the techniques of piecing, patching, and appliqueing fabrics have been known to exist for centuries in different locales and cultures. Quiltmaking is considered by many to be the quintessential American folk art.

The Foundry invites everyone to join us for the closing reception from 6:00pm – 8:00pm on Friday, July 10, 2015. The closing is free and open to the public. More information about both exhibitions is available at www.maaa.org and www.eusa.org.  Hours are Tuesday - Thursday from 10-8pm, Friday and Saturday from 10-5pm, and Sunday 12-4. Admission is free, and donations are welcome.
