Form Not Function

Form Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie is a MUST SEE exhibit held at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Indiana. This year's show will be held May 13-July 9, 2016.

"Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie" explores the world of contemporary art quilts. This annual, juried exhibit draws works of art by artists across the United States and celebrates innovation and creative thought in the increasingly popular medium of art quilts. This year, 20 quilts were selected out of the 281 submitted for consideration from 128 individual artists. (One of the quilts was made by a friend of mine, Marti Plager from Louisville.) A quote from the Carnegie's Facebook page says this about the exhibit, "A quick consensus is this is one of the (if not) best "Form, Not Function" exhibitions we have hung on our gallery walls."

The Award of Excellence, presented by Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists (LAFTA) went to Liz Kuny for her piece "10,000."

This is yearly? Then maybe I can go in 2017! And if I can, we'll plan to meet, if you're free.
