Front Range Contemporary Quilters: Diversity

Front Range Contemporary Quilters: Diversity

September 1, 2017 to October 27, 2017

Front Range Contemporary Quilters (FRCQ) is dedicated to expanding the boundaries and expressions of the art quilt well beyond traditional quilting roots. Together they exchange ideas, methods, techniques and skills, but they especially strive to inspire and support one another to extend their horizons in transforming fabric and fibers into exquisite art that touches both the artists and those who view their work.

Not only do they celebrate their most accomplished artists and their expressions of this art form, they also welcome and honor the creativity of those who are at any stage of their artistic work. Front Range Contemporary Quilters has an active and vibrant exhibitions program showcasing members’ art. All of their exhibitions are juried by art professionals from outside Front Range Contemporary Quilters.

Diversity is their latest exhibit, featuring 51 works by 33 different artists, juried by Nelda Warkentin. The theme is based on a quote from Maya Angelou: “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.”

The artists in this exhibit explore that notion with an exploration of diversity in media, technique, subject matter, and social commentary.
