CURRENT SHOWS AT RMQM:
Exhibits through October 21.
CIVIL WAR ERA QUILTS is the result of an American Quilt Study Group quilt study completed in 2014 which resulted in a collection of reproduction Civil War Quilts defined as quilts made between the years 1850-1865. It was up to each participant to determine their own construction methods for their projects based upon information available about the original quilt. This exhibit is curated by Joy Swartz.
PAGTINABANGAY: QUILTS OF CAOHAGAN ISLAND, an exhibit of quilts made by some of the 100 quilters on the tiny island of Caohagan in the Philippines. Part of a seven-island atoll, Caohagan is home to just 600 permanent residents. The quilters work daily to produce quilts that are sold abroad. The income from quilt sales makes up 1/3 of the entire revenue of the island and is an integral part of the island’s economy.
The colors and patterns evoke the tropics, while the handicraft is of the highest caliber. The results are quilts that evoke a far-away place but retain a human touch to which anyone who views them can relate. Curated by author and quilter Dana Jones.
