Circular Abstractions: Bull's Eye Quilts
Jun 3, 2017 - Aug 20, 2017
Circular Abstractions is a special summer exhibit curated by world-renowned quilter Nancy Crow and organized by the Muskegon Museum of Art.
Curator Nancy Crow challenged the participating artists to create a unique design based upon the Bull’s Eye pattern: four circles comprised of concentric rings (the iconic target symbol), set in a grid of four blocks, or quadrants. The quilts have been conceived in improvisation, in building upon or breaking down an established pattern into something new and individually expressive.
Sponsors for this exhibit include the Osborne Memorial Association, the Senator John A. DeFrancisco Arts in Cayuga County Program, and Bayer Crop Science.
