Information about the show can be found below:
The Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery's newest show, Fiber & Art Quilts with juror Deborah Jarchow, features a mix of ephemeral fiber and traditional art quilts by California artists. Pieces in the exhibition such as Stephanie Bedwell's Unforeseen Buoyancy convey the duality of the ephemeral nature of fiber and the strength of the human spirit through fiber vessels. Other pieces like Laura Bisagna's Pointless and Mia Bloom's Underneath explore traditional forms of quilting within modern subject matter and with ironic wit.
The exhibition runs from August 8 through September 27, 2014 at the Escondido Municipal Gallery. The gallery is open Tues. 11:00AM - 6:00PM and Thurs. through Sat. 11:00AM - 4:00PM. Meet the artists during our opening reception on Saturday, September 13 from 5:30 - 8:00PM. We are located at 262 E. Grand Ave. in Escondido.
