Iowa QuiltScape for May 14, 2020

Man Made [Virtual] Part THREE

Wednesday • May 20th • 12:30pm CDT
online via Zoom

We’re continuing our quest to bring special virtual programming to you each week!

Next week our virtual meet-up will feature modern quilters Erick Wolfmeyer and Bill Kerr who both have quilts in our current Man Made exhibit.

Bill Kerr, and wife Weeks Ringle, are celebrating their 20th year as professional quiltmakers and co-founders of Modern Quilt Studio, a design studio in Oak Park, Illinois. Bill and Weeks are pioneers of the Modern Quilt Movement, having written the first book on Modern Quilting. Modern Quilt Studio publishes Modern Quilts Illustrated, the first ever magazine exclusively dedicated to modern quilting. Bill began sewing at age 8 and started designing and making modern quilts in 1995. When he’s not working in the studio, Bill can be found at Dominican University in River Forest, IL where he is Director of the Graphic Design Discipline and former Chair of the Art Department.

While living in Yountville, California, Erick Wolfmeyer made his first quilt in 1998 with the help of a pattern. He now works exclusively from his own designs, which start as pencil sketches. His quilts have developed into a full-fledged art career, and have been featured in numerous publications and exhibits in the U.S. and Europe. He now resides and quilts in Iowa City, Iowa.
