Iowa QuiltScape for June 18, 2021

40×40@40: Contemporary Art Quilts
by the Manhattan Quilt Guild

On exhibit through August 29th

This exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of Manhattan Quilters Guild, celebrating the signature styles of their 21 members. What began as a small group of strangers responding to an ad in Quilters Newsletter Magazine—novice quilters sitting around a dining room table in Manhattan—has progressed into a select group of established artists who continue to meet in Manhattan. Their work, rooted in traditional craft, has evolved into fiber art forms that often go beyond quilts.
