Please join the SUNY Geneseo community at the opening reception of the first quilt exhibition in eight years.  The artists in this show were invited and juried.  The goal of each exhibit is to make available to the Western New York region nuanced accounts of artists response to genres, styles and mediums and this exhibit is no exception.  Quilt: Traditional / Not Traditional presents complex patterns and stichwork in the quilts of Crystal Ferrell and Elaine Ross.  The anthithsis would be Scott Andresen's found material quilts, or Rebecca Mushtare's quilts formed from plastics. Another new orientation of the quilt wrapped around wire is Jill Odegaard's quilt Space Between.  The exhibit clearly illustrates the wide variety of  possibilities for the American quilt. 

 

Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Thursday: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. and
Friday - Saturday: 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.

The Galleries will be closed during Spring Break from March 14 through March 18, 2016
