Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry at NEQM

From August 20 to October 31, 2015 the New England Quilt Museum will be featuring a retrospective exhibition of the work of Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry.

"Corona II: Solar Eclipse", 1989

Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry’s career as an innovative quiltmaker and award-winning fiber artist spans more than thirty years. The New England Quilt Museum is thrilled to bring together many of her iconic works for this exhibition, as well as her first quilt, works from her early experimental stages, and a sampling of her original fine art quilts that grace the walls of museums across the country. 

"Celebration #2", 2015 

Caryl's color work is stunning and her composition superb. Thoughtfully chosen images, often representing emotion or flights of fantasy, display an exuberant use of color and create the illusion of movement and light. The cosmos, dancers, feathers, and butterflies all evoke weightlessness and joy,while intimate portraits of her parents highlight the importance of family. The exhibition spans Caryl's career, her experimentation with various media, and the range of styles for which she is internationally recognized.

 There is a Curator's Reception & Gallery Talk on August 29, 2015 starting at 11:00 a.m. The program is free to members of the NE Quilt Museum and included in the price of admission for non members. The New England Quilt Museum is found at 18 Shattuck St., in Lowell, MA. Call 978 452-4207 for more information.
