Threads of Traditions II

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 at 11 a.m. on Friday, December 2. A "Meet the Quilters" reception will be held on Sunday, December 11 from 2 - 4 p.m. The exhibition continues until December 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.
