The Manhattan Quilters Guild
December 6 – January 12
40 X 40 @ 40 - NEW WORKS BY THE MANHATTAN QUILTERS GUILD
This exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of Manhattan Quilters Guild, celebrating the signature styles of our 21 members. What began as a small group of strangers responding to an ad in Quilters Newsletter Magazine -- novice quilters sitting around a dining room table in Manhattan – has progressed into a select group of established artists who continue to meet in Manhattan. Our work, rooted in traditional craft, has evolved into fiber art forms that often go beyond quilts.
Like Manhattan itself, our membership is cosmopolitan and international. We bring our stories, our skills, our diverse interests to the table. We work hard. We share. We create, each maintaining a unique voice, even as we inspire each other.
In addition to being professional exhibiting artists, we are designers, gallerists, curators, teachers, writers, bloggers, mentors, and entrepreneurs.
