The quilts are mostly antique traditional quilts, and many of the paintings include quilts. During this month, any painting/print that contains a quilt is 20% off the original price. I just fell in love with the gallery itself. It is in an old church building and is just stunning--a wonderful setting for the artwork. I obtained permission to post pictures of the quilt exhibit and paintings, but if you get a chance to go see it DO NOT MISS IT. Be sure to take the tour. Someone speaks about the paintings, and the day we were there they had someone speaking about the quilts. It was VERY informative and enjoyable.
I hope you enjoy the picture, and don't forget that you can click on the picture to get a closer look...
This is a painting...I know, I know, it looks like a real quilt. The quilt that was used for the backdrop of this painting was made by the woman who spoke about the quilts during our tour. The painting is called "Touched." The actual quilt is on display downstairs in The Sanctuary giftshop.
This is the main room of the gallery. Notice all the quilts placed throughout the room. The lighting on the paintings makes them look like they glow from within. You might think they actually do after you hear the stories of the paintings during the tour. Each of the paintings has a story just like there is a story behind most of our quilts.
A beautiful stained glass window serves as the backdrop for this display in a nook of the main room of The Sanctuary gallery. Several quilts are displayed on the table.
