Pushing the Surface
May 29 @ 12:00 pm - September 6 @ 4:00 pm$4.00 – $15.00
The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s exhibition of contemporary art quilts, Pushing the Surface, will be open to the public on May 29th. The exhibition is a dance of color, beauty, ingenuity, and story that showcases pieces made by 22 artists with national and international recognition. Surfaces may be pieced and patched as one finds in a traditional quilt, but they may also be painted, dyed, laser printed, appliquéd, or fused. The techniques are as varied as the subject matter, which is as varied as the effects. In the end, the artists create a truly new statement.
