'Threads of Tradition 2'Event Details: 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., December 11, Saint Louis University Museum of Art
A colorful, creative assortment of more than 40 quilts reflecting the art and artistry of local quilters will be on display at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art beginning 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 2. A "Meet the Quilters" reception will be held 2 - 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11. The exhibition continues until Dec. 23.
Through both traditional and original patterns, designers have crafted complex and often intricate textile works that are as delightful and surprising as they are durable and enduring.
From the "snowball" to the "storm-at-sea," from the "rail fence," to the "log cabin," these talented quilters have embraced tradition and recast it into pure art.
