“Squaring Up Histories” Exhibition Opening Reception
July 28 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
“Squaring Up Histories” exhibition opening reception with artists July 28, 3-5pm. This group exhibition is meant to coincide with Chautauqua Institution’s week 9 theme highlighting American Folk Art. Featuring textiles as well as video and glass, the work by this eclectic array of artists features various aspects of traditional quilt-making like storytelling, piecework, and the forging of community-based connections. From the iconic quilts of Gee’s Bend to reimagined Korean bojagi to inflatable glass, these works place quilt practices into a contemporary interdisciplinary context. This exhibition will also include a quilt-based community workshop. This exhibition is generously sponsored by the Kay Hardesty Logan Foundation. Closing August 22.
