I spent Sunday in Cazenovia, NY for the opening of the ArT QuILT ExPERIENce exhibit. The 64 juried quilts were displayed in two venues, so there were two artists' receptions to attend, in addition to a lecture by the head juror, Jonathan Holstein. It was quite a day!

I was fortunate enough to have one of my quilts selected for showing. I am new enough to this sort of experience that this was the first time I had a quilt listed in a catalog. I was quite delighted, to say the least. And, quite honestly, I was in awe of the other quilts in the exhibit. In the coming days, I will be sharing some of my many, many photos from the venues and lecture. For now, let me share some information on where to find the two venues, and three other opportunities to view art quilts in the neighboring area. If you are able to visit and wish to try and catch all five venues, the suggestion was made that you visit on Tuesday - Saturday, when all are open.

The two galleries where the ArT QuILT ExPERIENce can be seen are:

Stone Quarry Hill Art Park

In addition, Cazenovia Public Library, located at 100 Albany St (RT 20), Cazenovia, NY 13035,
is hosting two exhibits:

  • * Quilt Ephemera & Paraphernalia curated by Jonathan Holstein
  • * Eleven .... 11 Art Quilts: Rochester Area Fiber Artists (RAFA) 
The hours for the Cazenovia Public Library are Mon-Fri 9AM-9PM Sat 10AM-5PMand admission is free.
You will also find exhibits at:

  • The New Woodstock Free Library, 2106 Main St, New Woodstock, NY. The team of wonderful women who comprise the ArT QuILT ExPERIENce have a showing of their works entitled Art Quilts Today.  Hours: Mon-Fri 1PM-5PM Sat 10AM-1PM Admission: Free

 I really thought that the ArT QuILT ExPERIENCE was an exceptional show. It will be open until July 31 so I hope you can manage a trip to upstate New York!
