July 16-August 30
Dallas Modern Quilt Guild Exhibit
Granville Arts Center – Gallery Space
The Dallas Modern Quilt Guild exhibit features wonderfully designed and crafted quilts, following the aesthetics of the “Modern Quilt” movement. Modern quilters work in different styles, and define modern quilting in different ways, but several characteristics often appear which may help identify a modern quilt. These include, but are not limited to: the use of bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work. “Modern Traditionalism” or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting. This exhibit will be open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and during all performances.
