25th Annual Quilts Unlimited Exhibition
The 25th Annual Quilts Unlimited Exhibition will open at View on Saturday, October 8 and run until November 30. This display of quilts is an annual favorite that transforms the gallery into a pleasant plethora of pattern and patchwork. Quilts from across the country will be hung gallery style in the new arts center. This competitive exhibition features both traditional and eclectic quilts and wall hangings.
The opening day Saturday, October 8 is filled with activities from 10am – 4pm. It will feature the much anticipated Quilting Lecture and Luncheon “My Quilting Journey” led by Molly Waddell NQACJ at 10am. Lecture pre-registration is required and is $15/$10 members which includes exhibition admission. The opening reception will follow with quilt and quilted garment appraisals; demonstrations; an awards ceremony at 2pm; a fat quarter drawing where you can enter a 18”x22” piece of fabric “fat quarter” for a chance to win them all; and a reception at 3pm.
Molly Waddell is the Juror of Awards for this year’s exhibition, and a National Quilting Association Certified Judge. She has won numerous awards for her quilts on a local and national level. Some of her work has been published in The Quilting Quarterly, The 2007 Quilt Art Calendar and Quilters Newsletter Magazine. Molly was the co-chair for the 2002 and 2004 biennial quilt shows sponsored by the Quilters Consortium of New York State, Inc. Her goals as a quilt judge are to recognize the creativity and expertise of each quilt maker, to objectively and fairly evaluate quilts and wearable arts and to give constructive comments to quilters so that they may improve their workmanship and artistry, and to encourage them to stretch their creativity. She is a member of The National Quilting Association, The American Quilters Society, Thread Bears Quilt Guild and Mohawk Valley Quilt Club. Molly lives in Sherrill, NY with her husband Howard.
Exhibition admission is $8/$4 members & groups of 6+, children under 12 are free.
