A "Meet the Quilters" reception will be held from 2 - 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11. at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art. During the afternoon reception, featured quilters will offer visitors an opportunity to create festive, handcrafted ribbon ornaments from 1-4 p.m. The crafting is suitable for all members of the family.
The current exhibition at SLUMA, Threads of Tradition 2, features a colorful, creative assortment of more than 40 quilts reflecting the art and artistry of local quilters. 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.
Threads of Tradition 2 continues until Dec. 23.

Museum hours are 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
