October 30, 2015

30 Quilts for 30 Years is at Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg, Virginia, through December 17, 2015

Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry – “In the Marsh #2”

This exhibition celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry’s first art quilt in 1983. The thirty-six quilts on display, all of which are new, revisit many of the themes of her past, award-winning work, and also introduce some new themes. Although there is diversity in style, the uniform size of the quilts (30″ x 30″) pulls the exhibition together visually.
