Alliance for the Arts Presents May Exhibition Pushing Boundaries – Art Quilters Unlimited

The Alliance for the Arts May exhibition Pushing Boundaries: Art Quilters Unlimited opens May 5 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibit continues until May 26. Meet exhibiting artists during a conversational walk and talk as they discuss their works on May 6 at 10 a.m.

During this exhibition, Nancy Goodenow impressionistic and abstract works will be on display in the Member Gallery and landscape painter Richard Stanton will be on display in the Theatre Gallery.

“Fiber art is a unique way to exchange ideas,” says exhibitions coordinator Krista Johnson. “Throughout time, different cultures everywhere have been, and still are, weaving and sewing.”

Art Quilters Unlimited is an active creative group of contemporary fiber artists in southwest Florida. The group creates fine art wall hangings based on their experiences, imagery and ideas rather than traditional patterns. Techniques include machine and hand threadwork, shibori and discharged fabric treatments, painted surfaces, 3-D assemblages, wall sculptures and mixed media.
