Guilford Art Center invites the community to a free art-making event on Friday, February 23, 5:00-7:00pm, to celebrate the current gallery exhibition of art quilts, Flora and Fauna by the Studio Art Quilt Associates. This community event, called The Patchwork Project, encourages community members to create alongside each other by decorating their own poster-board squares in open studio creation stations. The project will culminate in each square being connected to the next, resulting in a community “quilt” that represents how each of our stories and lives are intertwined.
This project honors the role that textile and fiber artmaking has held throughout history and its role in building community, storytelling and preserving traditions. The gallery and shop will have extended hours of 10:00am-7:00pm on Friday, Feb 23. Participants are encouraged to visit the gallery exhibit for inspiration, which will be open throughout evening during the event.
Guilford Art Center will continue to offer this activity for gallery visitors throughout the weekend on Saturday, February 24 from 10:00am-4:00pm and Sunday, February 25 from 12:00-4:00pm. There will be a table set-up in the gallery entrance for those who want to create a square.
This event is free and open to the community. All ages are welcome.
