From the Cedar Chest: Southern Quilting 1830s to Today

Quilt by Molly Price

September 13–December 14, 2019
Sara May Love Gallery

From the Cedar Chest: Southern Quilting 1830s to Today is an exploration of the rich tradition of quilting in our local Big Bend community, spanning several generations and cultures to celebrate the beloved art of quiltmaking. For two years, a committee of local quilters and quilt collectors and the Gadsden Arts curator researched and identified historic to contemporary quilts in private and public collections across several counties in North Florida. Several of the quilts have been completed by multiple family members over a period of decades as patterns were passed down to younger generations. This exhibition discusses the story of an art form that was utilitarian, uniquely cultural, and inherently social, that bridges gaps between generations and finds commonalities between cultures.
