Internationally known Quilter to Exhibit at Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center

The Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center will be exhibiting the work of renowned artist and quilt maker Nancy Crow May 29 – Aug 15, 2010. Nancy Crow is one of the preeminent contemporary quilt makers in the world.

Through her groundbreaking, improvisational approach to quilting, she has had a major impact on the development of contemporary quilting, influencing a generation of quilters. Her mastery of shape, line and color results in one-of-a-kind compositions that are true works of art by any standard.

Her work is in the collections of several major museums including the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., the Museum of Arts & Design, NYC, and the Museum of American Folk Art, NYC. Her work was featured on the covers of two of Maya Angelou’s books published by Random House, Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou (1994) and Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now (1993).

A solo exhibition of her work was featured at the opening of the International Quilt Study Center at the Univ. of Nebraska in 2008, and she has had recent solo exhibitions at the Butler Institute of American Art, Howland, OH, the Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA, the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and the Snyderman Gallery, Philadelphia, PA. She has several books including the award-winning Nancy Crow, 2006, Breckling Press, Nancy Crow: Improvisational Quilts, 1995, C&T Publishing, Nancy Crow: Quilts and Influences, 1990, American Quilters’ Society.

Crow is a founder of the prestigious Quilt National exhibition in Athens, OH, Quilt Surface Design Symposium, Columbus, OH and the Art Quilt Network. She teaches workshops throughout the world and at her home in Athens, OH. She will be teaching at the Schweinfurth’s summer conference Quilting by the Lake, in 2010.

The Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center is a multi-art facility located in Auburn, NY. Other quilting programs at the Art Center include the annual juried quilt exhibit, Quilts=Art=Quilts November through the first week in January, and the annual conference Quilting by the Lake, July 16 – 30, 2010 (www.myartcenter.org).
