About the Exhibit:

Texas Art Quilts and Modern Masterpieces

September 5, 2014 - January 11, 2015

The Institute of Texan Cultures is proud to present "Modern Masterpieces by Texas Quilters, 1989-2010," and "Texas Art Quilts, 1993-2011," two exhibits from the Texas Quilt Museum, showcasing more than 40 contemporary Texas art quilts. With bold interpretations of old favorites, the featured quilters push the boundaries of Texas quiltmaking.
Themes of the two exhibits include science, fantasy, political causes, natural beauty, gardens, fishing and heavenly stars. Employing color and pattern in painterly fashion, the artists in this exhibition demonstrate that contemporary quilt art in the Lone Star state represents a vital aspect of our visual culture.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Quilters Guild of Dallas and Helena Hibbs Endowment Fund.
