Parallax: Views of Contemporary Quilt Artists


Opening reception: Friday, June 3, 2011 6-9pm at the Kunstler Gallery

Parallax: Views of Contemporary Quilt Artists, an exhibition curated by Pat Pauly, will be shown at the Kunstler Gallery at Booksmart Studio in Rochester, New York. More than 18 fiber artists embrace the concept of parallax view, where an object or idea is seen from two different perspectives. Many works have never been shown, and were specifically created for this exhibit.
In selecting works for this exhibition, Pat Pauly chose pieces that highlight the uniqueness of art quilts. Parallax presents a compilation of works that capture a theme through multiple viewpoints, perspectives and subjects. From Kathleen Loomis representing the two sides of the American Civil War, to dichotomic views of Lake Ontario as in Dorothy Caldwell’s “An Island, A Pond,” textile art proves a compelling, complex and expressive medium.

Featured artists include Belgian artist Jette Clover, Canadian artists Pamela Allen and Dorothy Caldwell, and American artists Terry Jarrard-Dimond, Nelda Warkentin, Dominie Nash, Sylvia Einstein, Kathleen Loomis, Judith Plotner, and others.
