During the month of July, the Oregon History Museum will showcase a stunning selection of art quilts made by local and international artists. The exhibit began with booking Quilt Art 20, an exhibit featuring quilts created by 20 professional international quilt artists. Since its beginning in Britain in 1985, the traveling exhibit features artists from the United States and Europe, representing eight countries in total. To insert a local element to the exhibit, a selection of historic quilts from the Oregon Historical Society’s collection were added to the exhibit, as well as quilt art from 10 contemporary quilters in Oregon. Quilt Art 20 became Timeless Quilts.

Oregon Artists include: Ann Johnston, Hilde Morin, Jean Wells, Jeannette Meyer, Susan Bucharest, Quinn Corum, Wendy Huhn, Marjorie Post, Kathie Kerler and Helene Knott.
