As an exhibit-only quilt museum, we install new exhibits four times a year. Here are our upcoming exhibits and be sure to check back as we continue to plan for the future.

Photos, Pixels, & Pizzazz: Recent Quilts by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry

December 12, 2023 – March 10, 2024

Throughout my 48-year career as a quilt artist, I have loved bold, graphic designs, brilliant colors and illusions of light and shadow. That’s the PIZZAZZ. In the same 48 years, the tools available to achieve those effects in fabric have changed dramatically. When I began quilting, the rotary cutter seemed revolutionary. In 1989, when I won Best of Show at the American Quilters Society show with a machine quilted, contemporary design, it caused a minor uproar among traditionalists. At that time, I was still drawing my designs on graph paper with colored pencils. In 1990 I purchased my first computer, and immediately began looking for ways to use it as a design tool. That’s where the PIXELS come in. My current computer is a Microsoft Surface Design Studio, which allows me to draw and paint directly on a touch screen. Some of the PHOTOS I have used in my recent quilts were taken by my husband, Ron Gentry. The others were all taken by me. Most of the quilts in Photos, Pixels & Pizzazz have been made in the last ten years.
