Exploring Layers Exhibit at Umpqua Valley Arts Center

Exploring Layers

January 16 – March 13, 2015

Opening Reception: Friday, January 16  |  5-7 PM

 (January 16 - February 27)
Exploring Layers is an exhibit of textile art featuring work
from the Oregon and Southwest Washington members of
the Studio Art Quilt Associates.  The theme Exploring
Layers has stimulated their members to create many pieces
expanding the boundaries of contemporary textile art. 
This work explores many layers of thought and an expanded
view of fibers as a medium.  The curators for Exploring
Layers are proud to present this work to the Oregon public.
The exhibit seeks to further promote quilting and its
evolution from craft to artform.

Bucknam Launches Solo Exhibit at Portland International Airport

Bonnie Bucknam has a solo exhibit of four quilts at the Portland International Airport.  The exhibit opens January 1 and runs through December of 2015.  The quilts can be seen overhead in Concourse D, just before Gate D2.  This is past security, so you must be a traveler to view the quilts.
