Material Conversations: Topeka

Ruth Powers, Bignonia

The Sabatini Gallery at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library
is hosting an exhibit until September 22. Two of our members have quilts in the show, Ruth and Janet.

"Material Conversations is a juried competition showcasing 19 works by 10 artists. This selection of contemporary explorations in fiber arts comes from the Kansas-based group, EDGE, an organization with regional to international membership consisting of fiber artists, art quilters, and mixed media artists."

Twister Paths

Jo Fitsell, Challenges

Dora Agbas, Water

Louise Kent, Log Cabin detail, 1940
There's a separate small exhibit of quilt watercolors from
the 1940 Index of American Design, a WPA project.

They also had a workstation with a Community Quilt Project.

The results were colorful
and they are adding to it everyday.
