Description

The City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center Gallery and the New Mexico Studio Art Quilt Association Presents: "Enchanted Threads: A Walk in the Wild"

Opening Reception - Nov.10, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Contemporary art quilts are part of a revolutionary movement that has transcended the once strict barriers between the craft of quilting and fine art, filling a niche somewhere between sculpture and painting. These artists combine their exceptional skills in working with fabrics, threads, and their artistic insights to craft stunning tactile creations that inspire, elevate, and encourage reflection. This artwork was created with a special emphasis on the geography and culture of the mountain west and Open Space lands. *

The Center is open Tuesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and closed Mondays.

WORKSHOP:

“Looking Beyond“ Quilting Workshop: December 1 and 2, 10 a.m. - noon.  Kids ages 5-12; limit 12 students per day. Call (505) 897-8831 to register.

Looking Beyond is a FREE two hour workshop enabling children to see 'past an object', using and understanding color, lines, shape and story. These exercises will be taught using fabric. The participants will take home a finished individual piece at the conclusion of the workshop.
