Quilt Exhibit in Orange, VA

Carolyn Mills passed along this information about a quilt exhibit in Orange VA.

Arts and Old Lace
The Arts Center in Orange
July 11 - 27

Information from the web site:
What do you think of when you hear, “Arts Old Lace?” A classic movie?  Your favorite fabric or trim?  Recreating classic art with an unexpected textile?  Or creating modern art with a vintage feel?  Does lace conjure images of weddings, baptisms, lingerie, table linens?  Using Arts Old Lace as your inspiration, create an art quilt that expresses your point of view.  This is what Virginia art quilters Cyndi Souder and Judy Gula asked of the 80 quilters who participated in Arts & Old Lace: An Art Quilt Challenge.  What they got in return was an amazing collection of 86 quilts addressing such topics as ancestors, weddings, flowers, lacemaking, famous artwork, and puns.  The Arts & Old Lace exhibit presents 86 quilts by artists from 10 states, the UK, and Canada.  More about the challenge
 My Mom and I got to see this exhibit in Lancaster. It was really interesting and worth an afternoon to go see it.
The Arts Center is about an hour drive from Montpelier. Directions are here.
