New Quilt Exhibit: Inspired By Science

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until July 8, 2018

Opening on May 5 and continuing through July 8, the Mill Museum — in partnership with the Connecticut chapter of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA-CT) — presents a stun-ning exhibit of new art quilts, “Local Color: Inspired by Science.” The exhibit features art quits by SAQA-CT members.
According to Clara Nartley, the exhibit’s coordinator, “Science and art often seem to be two mutually exclusive topics…. However, there are many linkages between the two disciplines. It is quite common to find artists with science backgrounds and vice versa. And just as common to have scientific devices influenced by the arts, whether it be in their design and user experience, or in their presentation.”
“Traditional quilting techniques, photographic processes, illustration, and digital technology, play a significant role in many of these pieces, both in conceptualization and execu-tion,” Nartley continues. “Drawn from artists in Connecti-cut and surrounding areas, the works in ‘Local Color: In-spired By Science’ expand on the narrative of science in art.”
Adds Mill Museum Executive Director Jamie Eves, “We are really excited to be hosting this exhibit — one that will be shown in various locations around the state. The Mill Museum and Windham/Willimantic are becoming centers for an emerging fiber arts community. This is the Museum’s third annual quilt exhibit, and we plan on more to come.”
