CONTEMPORÂNEO – CONTEMPORARY
For the past 8 years CQA has been sending art quilts to the Patchwork Design show in Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeria, Brazil to be exhibited side by side with Brazil quilt artists. This exhibit gives United States veiwers a chance to see Brazil and US art quilts side by side. The Brazil artsts over the years explored the abstract with emphasis on adding depth with embellishments. While CQA artists created mainly abstract art quilts in early years, they have started moving towards abstract realism often with very little physical depth.
This show exhibits at American Quilters Socitey shows in Daytona Beach, FL, Feb. 28 - March 3, Lancaster, PA, March 21-24; and Paducah, KY April 18-21, 2018. It will then travel to La Conner WA, Pacific Northwest Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum, where the Brazil quilts will be shown October through December 2018, and CQA quilts will exhibit November 2018 through January 2019.
