The 12th Annual Many Cultures–One Art Quilt Show is now on display in the Gallery of Jackson Hall and is presented jointly by CESKAA and the Central Kentucky Homemakers Quilt Guild.
This year’s show of 63 quilts is by far the largest number of quilts displayed and features a variety of quilts and quilters. Phyllis D. Miller of Murray, Ky., who is well-known for her intricate appliqué, has 25 quilts in the show. She has shown quilts throughout America and has taught appliqué quilting and has authored quilting books.
Juanita Yeager, a master quilter formerly of Louisville, Ky., has brought together 23 quilts by a select group of quilters from all over the Eastern U.S., including Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Jersey, South Carolina, Virginia, and New York. These exquisite art quilts were on display this summer at the Spoken with Hands show sponsored by the Ohio Valley Art League.
Dr. Starlene Taylor of Nashville, Tenn., with seven quilts in the show, is an Afro-centric fiber artist who uses appliqué and embellishments. The remaining appliquéd quilts were contributed by members of the Central Kentucky Homemakers Quilt Guild.
This free exhibit is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday through October 31. The quilts can also be seen during Homecoming weekend from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11.
