Dialogues: Contemporary Responses to Marie Webster Quilts
Indiana’s own Marie Webster (1859-1956) is widely acclaimed as a pioneer in the art of quilt design and construction, publishing the first book solely dedicated to the history of the quilt: Quilts: Their Story and How to Make Them in 1915. Her early 20th century designs recently inspired artists to create small-scale art quilts for an exhibition, Dialogues: Contemporary Responses to Marie Webster Quilts. This juried show is sponsored by the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) featuring 26 pieces from 8 Midwestern states. Each work reflected a unique perspective on Webster’s traditional patterns some one hundred years after the fact. On exhibit February 3 – April 29, 2017.
