After a successful and very well-received showing of the recent PAQA-South exhibits held earlier this year in Cary, NC, it is with great pride that we offer the opportunity to see these exceptional art quilts again:
East Carolina University School of Art and Design
Wellington B. Gray Gallery
June 3 – 28, 2013
Artist reception: Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 6 to 8pm
ARTQUILTSrivers was the brainchild of PAQA-South member Ann Flaherty, who worked with Taiwan Art Quilt Society's (TAQS) Lin Hsin-Chen, to create the exhibit. During the collaboration, six PAQA-South artists and six TAQS artists joined forces to create 12 individual art quilt panels depicting a flowing river which visually connects from one quilt to the next.
In conjunction with ARTQUILTSrivers, PAQA-South also developed a companion exhibit entitled ARTQUILTSwater. This 40-quilt exhibit is PAQA-South's 10th International Juried Show and displays artistic interpretations of the water theme created by fiber artists from all across the United States. Jurors Steven Silverleaf and Ann Harwell did an exceptional job selecting the innovative quilts for this visually pleasing exhibit.
If you were able to see the quilts in Cary earlier this year, we thank you for supporting PAQA-South's efforts in showcasing the talents of fiber artists. If you haven't had the opportunity to see these exhibits, we encourage you to visit ECU this summer for the encore exhibit.
Thank you for your continued support of PAQA-South.
