Art + Quilt = Art, an exhibit opening March 7 at Art League Gallery, showcases the work of the five award-winning members of the Art Quilters of the Lowcountry. Each artist has his or her own individual style and signature technique, making for an eclectic and inspiring show. From realistic to abstract, whimsical to majestic, and large to small, these quilts show the creativity and versatility that is textile art. Techniques used include beading, improvisational piecing, and thread and fabric painting.

“The exhibit displays the incredible colorwork, inventiveness and craftsmanship of the Quilters’ unique art form,” says Kristen McIntosh, Art League Gallery manager. “These aren’t traditional bed quilts. They’re art quilts that are just as emotionally powerful as any painting or sculpture.”

Art + Quilt = Art will be on exhibit March 7-April 8, 2023. An artist reception will be held on Wednesday, March 8, 5-7pm. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
