A Thread Runs Through It, an exhibit opening August 31 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 style and signature technique, making for an eclectic and inspiring show. From beading and improvisational piecing to thread and fabric painting, the techniques used create pieces that range from realistic to abstract, whimsical to majestic.

“The exhibit displays the incredible color, creativity 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.”

The artists will be demonstrating their signature techniques every Wednesday, 2-4pm, during the show. The schedule is as follows:

Sept 1: Peg Weschke, Collage from Photographs
Sept 8: Donna Stankiewicz, Painting on Fabric
Jody Wigton, Monoprinting on a Gel Plate
Sept 15: Ron Hodge, Embellishing with Beads
Sept 22: Ro Morrisey, Seascapes and Marshscapes

A Thread Runs Through It will be on exhibit August 31-September 25, 2021. An artist reception will be held on Wednesday, September 8, 5-7pm. Please RSVP for the reception and demos at gallery@artleaguehhi.org to prevent overcrowding.
