Quilts presented as art

Video from the Rooted in Tradition exhibit in St. Petersburg, FL.

It is such a joy to see quilts presented on gallery walls with tweaked lighting as opposed to the multitudes of quilts hung on drape-n-poles with general lighting of the otherwise fantastic World Quilt Show earlier this month.

  1. Wow, thanks for that Jackie! truly a stunning curation. A friend and i were just having coffee and one thing that came up was the presentation of textile art--if it isn't "hung" properly, people think of it only as something "fabricy", but thoughtful "framing" whether on canvas or hidden mechanics, and good lighting really elevate it to where it should be, as Art.


Thanks for stopping by!! Love to read your comments - whether on vintage thrifting or creative stitching!! (Comments are moderated due to high spam lately - sorry!)
