Art Quilts Exhibit at the Brookfield Library
“Painting with Fabric: quilts that look like painting”
See the spectacular and intricate art quilts in the January exhibit by Avon textile artist Judy Ross. Her exhibit of colorful quilts will be on exhibit from January 3 – January 31 at The Brookfield Library Art Gallery. You will have an opportunity to meet the artist for one day only, Sunday, January 12, from 3:00 – 5:00 pm. Ms. Ross’s quilt-scapes are of land, sea and air and are realistically stylized, close-up views from her unique perspective. She has exhibited in numerous galleries and shows throughout Connecticut as well as nationally and internationally. One of her quilts was featured in a 2014 book “Dare to Dance” by Mary Kerr. Inspired by her environment, Ms. Ross combines color, texture and dimension to create something beautiful.
The Brookfield Library Art Gallery will be open for dedicated viewing of this exhibit on Fridays from 12:00 noon – 2:00 pm, in January and whenever there is not a library program in session.
“I can’t think of a more appropriate exhibit in the middle of winter than beautiful quilts. This work is extraordinary. From a distance you will swear they are paintings. You will be amazed at Judy’s use of textures and choices of colors and you will see a wonderful balance of realism and whimsy. Don’t miss this unique exhibit in January. ” said Library Director Yvonne Cech.
Area artists are invited to submit samples of their work either in person at the library or on the library’s website at www.brookfieldlibrary.org. The Art Gallery Committee will review all submissions and will contact those selected and will schedule exhibits. Library patrons will be able to see each exhibit as they attend library programs in the community room. Check the library’s website for information on dedicated viewing Art Gallery viewing days and times.
