Exhibition News - NE Quilt Museum

Water's Beauty, Use and Misuse
July 14 through October 16, 2016

Aquifer by Carol Nilsen

CONFLUENCE is an exhibition that was conceived by California artists, Inga Gorsvans-Buell and Deborah Weir, in response to two issues of great importance to them both: water and art. It is a bold exhibition of thematically cohesive artwork displaying a wide range of quilting techniques. The goal of the exhibition is to expose viewers to a colorful and sophisticated experience with a wide array of quilts on the topic of water.  The artists examine oceans and rivers, creatures who inhabit the seas, life in coastal regions, man-made piers and bridges, and the pollution we discard into them. Intellectually compelling, visually beautiful, and intriguingly varied, this exhibition is particularly relevant at this time of rapid global changes.
