Hometown Summer Exhibit

There will be lots of exhibits this summer for our Kitterman Woods Residents to enjoy. En Plein air painting captivates people of all ages and from May 26-July 15, En Plein Air will feature the work of local artists. Patrons will recognize many of the historic buildings and landmarks depicted in their work in a variety of media. Many of the paintings are available for purchase, with sales benefiting the Museum.

A Patchwork History, which will hang from June 9-July 15, will show how quilts have changed from traditional designs and functional use to experimental designs and contemporary art, inspiring a new generation of fiber artists and artisans to work in a surprising variety of media. Ceramic tile “quilts” from two area elementary schools will be just one example of this emerging art form.

There will be turn-of-the-century quilts from Elliott and House of Refuge collections. Visitors will be invited to create a square for the Paper Quilt project and be part of the exhibit.

The exhibitions share an opening reception on Thursday, June 15 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per person. Munchies and cash bar will be available.

Date: Friday May 26, 2017 through Saturday July 15, 2017.
