More images from the Elliott Museum in Stuart, FL with an exhibit that showcases the heritage of quilts, as well as the current genres.
This piece by Louise Hall was mounted on black.
This octopus by Pam Post attracted lots of attention. The suckers were 3D.
Linda Ludemann’s cranes were also very popular.
And here I am with my piece Ti Plants A-Glow-Glow. There was a very interested docent who asked me lots of questions about it. Among other things, I told her how I jagged cut many of the pieces to give an unpredictable organic feel.
In addition to fabric quilts, this exhibit includes several pieces that reference quilts and quilt designs. Like this miniature quilt store.
And then there’s this. A nice historical quilt, right? Well, yes, but that’s not the artwork. The bed is!
On closer inspection, you can see that Angela Scozzari, the artist, has stacked five rusted box springs for this piece. The quilt is merely staging.
Another of her pieces was made up of rusted panels arranged on the floor in a grid. She was also invited to show several other works.
As you can imagine, the fiber artists in the group were of mixed opinion on her pieces. However, everyone agreed that they were very interesting.
This is a very nice exhibit, but it only runs through July 15th. If you want to see it don’t delay! Need more reasons to visit? The museum includes a large collection of antique cars and other vehicles and machines. Plus, it’s RIGHT AT the beach. There’s something for everyone.
