FEBRUARY 4 – MARCH 12, 2021
OPENING RECEPTION (VIRTUAL), February 4, 2021 at 7:30 pm (registration required)
40 x 40 @ 40 celebrates the 40th anniversary of The Manhattan Quilters Guild, a remarkable group of women who span a wide range of ages and are from different backgrounds and use different techniques. The works featured in this exhibition, individually and collectively, show the strength of women’s work rooted in a traditional craft that has evolved into fiber art that goes beyond what is perceived as a quilt. Each artist created a large scale work measuring 40″ x 40″ in commemoration of the Guild’s 4oth anniversary. An opening night event will be held on February 4 at 7:30 pm via Zoom that will feature a virtual tour by artist Randy Frost followed by a panel discussion with members of the Guild.

40 x 40 @ 40 will challenge your conceptions of what quilt art is and open your mind to the beauty and complexity that needle, thread and fabric can create.
